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 n with their Teutonic cheekbones and fluoridated teeth n 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.

HASH(0xa3a95a38) out of 5 stars Good information - difficult to access Jan. 10 2013

As with any ebook it is difficult to use as a reference. It is best used if you are simply reading it like a narrative to learn about Australia.

HASH(0xa3a95a74) out of 5 stars Great pictures but thin text Oct. 9 2012

I kinda liked it but I wanted an ebook to carry with me while traveling there to help plan the days, etc and avoid the giant paper books. I'm not sure I got what I needed. There is info but I haven't yet figured out how to navigate, markup, etc in a way that helps a traveler. Anyway awesome color photos, a little better navigation than other travel books. Was more impressed with the free sydney app for the iPad.

HASH(0xa3a95e64) out of 5 stars Great Guide! Oct. 15 2013

With Australia being as large as the US, I was overwelmed with planning our trip. Lonely Planet's Discover Australia was helpful in knowing where to go ... on various time lines. I wish they listed affordable bed and breakfasts and other quaint places.
