5.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr guter Travelguide für Australien 4. Januar 2014
Format:Taschenbuch
Wir haben diesen Reiseführer kurz vor Reiseantritt gekauft und ihn während unserer Reise laufend verwendet. Zur Vorbereitung ist der Lonely Planet aus meiner Erfahrung meist nicht allzu lesenswert, da man sich aufgrund fehlender Bilder wenig vorstellen kann...vor Ort war er jedoch eine tolle Hilfestellung-alle Tipps (zB Restaurants) waren bestens! Auf jeden Fall eine Weiterempfehlung!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A big book for a big country. More breadth than depth. 27. November 2013
Von Jon L. Albee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Australia is an enormous country that offers the perfect blend of urban sophistication, natural wonder, and rugged, rural beauty. In your reviewer's humble opinion, it is the world's best country. I love it. Always have. Always will.

Australia is endlessly fascinating, as the authors of this book readily explain on multiple occasions. But all this Aussie lovliness also makes a good travel guide that much more difficult to prepare. As the authors of this book have said, they've been writing about Australia for 30 years, and they could spend another 30 and still not cover it all. A single-volume encyclopedia of all things Aussie, which this books attempts to be, is a very tall order. Any such book will be necessarily summarized, and this one is no exception.

It's a good book, but its coverage of urban and suburban areas outside the major cities is thin. For example, Melbourne gets the kind of feature attention you would expect for a city of its size and importance, but the fascinating Victorian gold-rush towns of Ballarat and Bendigo get only the most summary review. Also, the authors do appeal to certain stale stereotypes when describing the cities in social context. Sydney is the easy-going beach town. Melbourne is the artsy London wannabe. Then there's progressive and snobby Adelaide; isolated, Mod-Oz boomtown Perth; sleepy Canberra, etc... While there's some truth to these observations, they become less obvious with each passing year, and few tourists are likely to understand, or even recognize these cultural traits.

Areas that stand out in this book are its treatment of outdoor activities, natural exploration and indigenous culture. Australia is an absolute playground of all things natural, and this book is sure to bring your attention to that fact. There's excellent content featuring, for example, the Great Barrier Reef, the Snowy Mountains, the Atherton Tablelands, Uluru, the fantastic national parks around Sydney, and (literally) hundreds of other beautiful natural locations. The first time I saw the Blue Mountains, I was absolutely floored. Not-to-be-missed locations like this feature prominently in the guide.

This is a brand new book, so listings are right up to date (as of late 2013). Hotel and restaurant listings are selective since it would be impossible to include everything, even everything good. What IS included runs the full range of most rustic to most luxurious lodgings, from bushtucker to ultra-refined Mod-Oz cuisine, and includes many listings that offer a unique and authentic experience. The listings of tour operators are particularly helpful, especially in tropical Queensland.

Pragmatic information gives way to physical content in this book since Australia is an easy country to travel in. There are some nice suggestions on how to survive extended treks in the bush and outback. Historical and cultural contexts, likewise, are only there by necessity, and offer few real insights into the history and multi-ethnic culture of the country. Anyone looking for a meaningful history of Australia should consult other sources such as Robert Hughes' superb colonial history, "The Fatal Shore" or Bruce Chatwin's "The Songlines."

This is a big, general guide book that covers the country well, particularly its natural wonders.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not a good book for a Kindle 18. Januar 2014
Von James E. Forrest - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I should have known...these kind of books where you jump around all the time, referring to the index and table of contents, looking for and at maps and picture, and so on are definitely NOT suited for the Kindle. It is a terrible medium for non-linear reading. I think the book would probably be just fine, in an actual book format. But this was a complete waste of money.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good information but... 7. März 2014
Von Richard R - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased the Kindle version of the LP Australia guide in preparation for a recent trip to Australia. I was attracted to the electronic version since I am am "Techie" at heart and the guide actually made good reading while on the long 15 hour flight to get from LA to Sydney. The guide covers the entire continent of Australia but my visit was limited to Sydney and surroundings, Blue Mountains, Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road; so there was a lot of unused material.

The information provided in LP is useful but is also readily obtainable locally at Tourist Guide centers, concierges, tour desks etc. My GPS also was a great resource for
Points Of Attractions and was more useful than the LP guide. Also, consider that without accessible wifi the expanded links within LP to maps etc are useless.

In hindsight now that the initial excitement of the trip is over, I could have easily done without the LP Guide since I didn't refer to it at all once I got to Australia.
A form of buyer's remorse.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good book, but tough to navigate 26. Dezember 2013
Von Anne-Marie Cherry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I use Lonely Planet guides frequently, and since the company is headquartered in Melbourne, I thought this book would be the ultimate. In general, I found the recommendations good but there could be more restaurant suggestions, especially in Sydney. The restaurants recommended in the tourist areas seemed to be the same ones recommended by many sites.

Also, the navigation on my Kindle Paperwhite was terrible. The table of contents is divided by areas, but not additionally by attractions/hotels/restaurants, so for example you might have three listings for Bondi Beach and not know which one to choose. And in order to use the offline maps, you have to go the original TOC listing and get the key (E3, for example) then back to the attraction, then to the map. Very confusing. It's like nobody there has ever tried to use the book on a Kindle.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hard to find a better guide 22. Dezember 2013
Von John D. Wallace - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

LP is normally on the money, so much so that I use this guide despite being from Australia. They have even improved the kindle version with better resolution colour maps.
