HASH(0x9b84b198) von 5 Sternen Good for traditional tourists 1. Juni 2012
Von Happy Camper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Australia is a big and diverse place, and this is a very hefty guidebook. It's strong points: good coverage and descriptions of places to stay and eat; helpful information about transporation, ATMs, phones, visas, and customs; coverage of major museums, points of interest, and tours; and excellent overall organization. Weankesses: Only a few sketchy maps, not a lot of information about the country's history, geography, and "essence"; not enough photos; no seasonal temperature/rainfall charts; and few ideas for traveling on a budget. It's not Frommer's fault, but the prices of the suggested hotels and tours were very high - enough to scare away middle class tourists. Also, the guidebook is tailored to traditional tourists who want to spend time in hotels and restaurants and taking guided tours. It will not be very helpful for adventure tourists who like to go it alone, hike and camp, and see the really wild places.

HASH(0x9b66878c) von 5 Sternen Intro to Australia only. 16. April 2012
Von T.L. Walker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
While this guidebook would be wonderful for someone who wanted to decide where in Australia they should visit, or for someone who was taking a big Australia trip that consisted of now more than a day or two in most places, in general the information is simply not very detailed - and there are far too many pages about "where to stay" considering how little information is given on "what to do"/"where to eat".

Therefore, if you're going to Australia and know that you'll be spending an extended amount of time in any one city/area, I suggest getting a guidebook that focuses on that area (i.e. Sydney, Queensland, the outback, etc.). If you're just looking for a general overview, then - and only then - pick up this guidebook.

Frommer's Australia (Frommer's Color Complete)
Because we are considering a trip to Australia we were about to buy a good guide, and there on my next Vine list was Frommer's Australia.

This is one of the most comprehensive, complete and interesting guides I have read in sometime. Everything you want to know is available on traveling through Australia: travel information from city to city, or into the Outback, warnings about traveling alone without proper supplies of water and food, and that cells may not have coverage deep in the country side, and warnings about not leaving the auto if you get stalled in the desert and more.

Also there are lists of restaurants in every town and city as well as reviews of many of them and details of menus the same is true of hotels and other such accommodations.

The book is hugely thick, detailed and jam-packed with information about every possible necessity, or even simply curiosity one could possible imagine. In addition it is cleverly designed for simplicity and ease of discovery of whatever it is you may be seeking, very well organized, utilizing writers who live in the various areas upon which it reports which turn out to be every place on that continent that might attract tourists.

There are many travel guides on the market and this one is one of the very best I have read, and quite possibly the best of the best.

I recommend it highly if you are planning a trip Down Under. Moreover, as of this view today, you can save a considerable discount off the list price of $26.99, though I cannot guarantee that discount will remain.
Give Frommer's Australia (Frommer's Color Complete) [Paperback] a try, I doubt that you will regret doing so.

Have a good trip!

I didn't find this guide very useful in the same way I've found Frommer's to be generally not good for me. It doesn't cover the stuff I'm interested in, has less cultural and historic information, and is overly positive about things that should get worse reviews. I got the Lonely Planet guide in addition to this one and only used the Lonely Planet guide while I was in Australia.

HASH(0x9b6688dc) von 5 Sternen The Ideal Guide For The Budget-Conscious, Australia-Bound Traveler 23. August 2012
Von Gregory McMahan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The good folks at Frommers have hit yet another out of the park. This guide focused on the inexpensive as opposed to the simply cheap, and is geared more to families with children than singles and other tourist demographics. Overall, the guide is very well organized with sixteen colorful, information-packed chapters that also feature lots pics and full-color maps. Additionally, the added attention to clear and legible typeface was literally a sight for sore eyes.

Like other Frommers guides, the first three chapters provide the best of Down Under, a general introduction to the continent/country and suggested itineraries (with an emphasis on traveling with kids), respectively. As an aside, their best-of-Australia chapter gets many kudos for its suggestions on moderately-priced alternatives for lodging, dining and things to see and do. Subsequent chapters move counter-clockwise around the continent, starting with Sydney and New South Wales (chapters four and five) and ending in Tasmania (chapter 15). The guide devotes the final chapter to planning a trip to Australia.

I regard the last chapter as the book's only minor demerit for a couple of reasons. Given its position in the guide and the grandeur of the continent from a geographical, cultural and tourist standpoint, the Frommers folks should have really made this the very first chapter. This chapter also provides the best tip to readers for traveling and lodging in Australia- seeing the country by renting a recreational vehicle (something of a national pastime for the citizens). That actually made a lot of sense, given the great distances one must travel to points of interest, the (relatively) low-cost of petrol Down Under (from a Western European and Japanese driver's standpoint; for Americans the prices are positively painful) and economizing on lodging expenses while seeing the country (plus, the RV can serve as a mobile base of operations when you camp out at one of the many public and RV-accessible beaches in the country). Also, this chapter provided a useful tip on getting around while Down Under: since Australia is a big country, be prepared to fly, but those on a budget and looking to travel about on the cheap should opt for Greyhound Bus Australia. By the way, be forewarned: car rentals Down Under are expensive, and insurance costs are prohibitive, so lining up alternative means of transportation wherever possible is highly recommended.

Having been introduced to the land of kangaroos and Foster's beer by the travel DVDs Globe Trekker - Australia (Double DVD) and Globe Trekker - Ultimate Australia (this latter one contains in-depth travelogues of Sydney and Brisbane, as well as all of Globe Trekker's travel coverage of Australia), I promised myself that I had to visit Fraser Island (pages 360-64 of the guide)- the world's largest sand island, after reading the guide's in-depth description of essentially a really long, white-sand beach with lovely fresh water pools in the middle of it.

I will definitely take this guide with me on my next trip to Australia, and I highly recommend this travel guide as the premier, go-to source for all of one's Aussie-bound travel planning.
