About the Author
As a likely lad, Charles suffered in shorts through Tasmanian winters and in summer counted the days until he visited his grandparents in Adelaide. With desert-hot days, cool swimming pools, pasties with sauce squirted into the middle and four TV stations, this flat city held paradisiacal status. In teenage years he realised that girls from Adelaide, with their Teutonic cheekbones and fluoridated teeth, were better looking than anywhere else in Australia. These days he lives with a girl from Adelaide in the Adelaide Hills and has developed an unnatural appreciation for Coopers Pale Ale.

The redesigned look and feel of the book is clearer and more practical, and as usual, chapters are split by regions or major cities, and always colorfully but concisely written, and a joy to read.
The trip has already begun once you lay your eyes on its pages.

Did a search on Alice Springs and it returned only one entry about a town called Mt Isa. Did a search on Uluru Kata, Ayers Rock and it returned nothing. I don't know if the search engine is broken or if ] the printed version doesn't have info on those places. Anyway, they should be there.
Did a search on Brisbane, which returned a 100 entries, but the first several entries were for Brisbane St located in another city.
I had to return it. No value at all.
The info contained here is a great overview of Australia. It hits most of the big sites, hotels and restaurants and some of the smaller, less known ones too. No book like this will be complete, but I am happy with the purchase.
