The Australian dollar has recently plunged in value against the U.S. dollar making Australia far more accessible than its been in years. To keep up with all the changes the new currency situation has brought about, we’ve turned once again to Lee Mylnes. Based in Brisbane (the third most populous city in Australia), Mylnes has been an Australian travel journalist for nearly all her working life. She has traveled to every state and territory of Australia by every means of transport, and she is a life member and past president of the Australian Society of Travel Writers.
The book is updated yearly, concisely written (so it’s light to carry) and printed in large, easy-to-read font. It contains:
-A 16-page photo guide to the destination, with vibrant photographs, at the front of the book
-Exact pricing, so there’s never any guessing
-Dozens of maps throughout
-Sample itineraries so you can make the most of your time in country
-Opinionated reviews of the country’s many attractions, hotels, restaurants, nightlife venues and shops from an author who has visited them all, and thus has the expertise to compare and call out only those that are worth your time.
