Product Description

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.

Lots of information to help you plan your travel. The book is too big to bring on my trip, but perfect to plan ahead.

Though I yet have to be on the road to verify the accuracy of the 2011 edition of the Australian guide, I can expect, from my past experiences with LP (Vietnam, Thailand, China, Portugal, USA West Coast) that I won't be disappointed.

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.
Thanks.

Kindle version pretty much useless Nov. 18 2012
By Alfred Gary Myers Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Since there's no decent Table Of Contents, I thought I'd be able to find information using Search, but I was wrong.
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.
USELESS!

Buy another book April 10 2012
By Anna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We only used this book for Cairns and Sydney but judging by these two sections, this book is not worth it. The content is poorly organized, the maps are hard to use, and in general it seems that the authors don't like the country. We loved the country and wish we would have gotten a different travel book.

Get the print copy instead May 14 2012
By Nick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It is hard to find the section you are after. There is no table of contents or any other way to flip to a section of the book. The links do not all work. The formatting is bad.

I had to return it. No value at all.

Disgrace to Lonely Planet or any travel guide July 14 2013
By Connie Berry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have never seen such a lousy and incomplete guide I have seen. I made the mistake of not heeding the reviews. The kindle version is a mess and difficult to search (AKA near impossible) and missing valuable information. I wish I could simple get a full refund on this. No excuse for such a guide.
