Fodor’s see it Australia is perfect for travelers who want to understand Australian history and culture before they arrive, and experience the country like a native Aussie while they’re there.

Overflowing with brilliant color photography, this is the only illustrated guide that provides the practical information that you need while traveling–complete restaurant and hotel reviews with exact prices for lodging and dining (not ranges), plus time-saving tips and how to avoid crowds, exact admission prices to key sights, great photo stops, and special notes on “kid-friendly” attractions throughout.

Our detailed reviews represent the best accommodations in Australia, in all price ranges. From five-star luxury hotels to low-budget camping grounds, we’ll tell you what to expect in terms of price and quality through extensive coverage of hotels and their surrounding neighborhoods, exact prices of double-occupancy rooms (including breakfast), plus pictures of hotel facilities and guestrooms.

If you want to experience the best the Land of Oz has to offer, pay particular attention to our outstanding restaurant coverage that will help you choose from the thousands of local eateries that cater to every budget and dining experience. From affordable, fish and chips at local pubs to places where you can splurge on a romantic, candlelit dinner at Rockpool in Sydney–you’ll find it in see it Australia. Each review covers house signature dishes, ambiance, actual prices for a two-course lunch and a three-course dinner (for two people), hours of operation, and what transportation will get you there.

The Sights
Whether you want to enjoy a glass of Australian wine while looking across a vineyard, view the deep canyons and sheer cliffs of the Blue Mountains, explore a tropical rainforest, climb to the top of Kings Canyon for a spectacular view of the desert or just spend the day exploring at the Great Barrier Reef, see it Australia will take you there. Accessibly written to help you navigate throughout the country without missing a thing, each attraction includes exact admission prices, what galleries and museums not to miss, and where to stop for quick bites and refreshing drinks along the way. Sights are also rated for their “value”, “walkability”, “historic and cultural interest”, plus we suggest fantastic “photo stops” and entertaining and age-appropriate “kid-friendly” attractions throughout the book.

What to Do?
Our shopping walks will lead you to cutting-edge fashions to fit all budgets, from hip streetwear to expensive fashions for your feet. But, Australia has much more to offer than just sight-seeing and shopping. Fodor’s see it Australia provides insider information on classical, theatrical, and cinematic performances, Australia’s music scene (live jazz to underground youth centres), nightlife, spectator and activity sports, and festivals and events.

Atlas and Maps
Detailed neighborhood maps
are incorporated throughout the book to help you navigate on historic walks, shopping tours, or to find a restaurant. Plus, a 16-page atlas details each road and path with highlights of important landmarks, parks, metro stations, and car parking areas.

  • Maybe the worst travel book ever!
    From Amazon

    Totally disorganized. If you want to travel in Brisbane, you have to look in 6 different sections to get all the different information about Brisbane. The walking tour on pp 228-229 has each of the places numbered and refers to a map on page 102 that has no numbers. And doesn't even show all the places listed in the walking tour. No legend on the map so you have to "know" that the red dots are Queensland Railway stations. Save your money and frustration. Do not buy this book.
