Format: Paperback
I'm surprised this is only the second review on this book. I agree with the previous writer that one probably needs to read more than one travel guide on a country as big and diverse as Australia, but I would definitely give this guide more than just 3 stars. I think it deserves at least a four, but to sort of counteract his paltry three stars, I'm going to give it a 5. :-)

For one thing, although he's right about the photos being rather sparse, having worked in the publishing field for a few years once, this is obviously intentional to keep the costs down. It more than compensates for that by having detailed, well written, informative text. Also, I have a recommendation below on how to approach these guides in terms of how to use the shorter, more photographic guides, versus the longer, less visual ones like Frommer's.

For example, if you want beautifully illustrated, glossy photos of Oz, you can pick up the Insight guide, the Dorling Kindersley, or the Nat'l Geographic guide, all gorgeous guides visually, but they are five to seven dollars more than this one, and contain 200-300 fewer pages of text. They are truly beautiful, stunning, and graphically very well-designed and laid out books, and after looking at them, I almost felt like I didn't need to spend $4000 on a real trip to Oz anymore since the photo essays in these books were so good. You can take an armchair excursion for $30 for the DK book and save yourself several thousand dollars. Plus you don't need to sit in those cramped coach seats for 14 hours, which doesn't especially appeal to me since I'm 6'4" and I'm not exactly built for that.

I tend to prefer the layout of Frommer's guides, and this one was no exception: easy to read with easy to find, relevant info. Of course, no one guide to a country this size can cover it all in depth. Insight and Nat'l Geographic have the best pictures, and Let's Go is the best budget travel guide and might be worth buying even for non-hostelers. Daytrips to Eastern Australia is a good supplement for longer stays there.

The first reviewer said Frommer's has only 30 pages on Melbourne (it has 46) and 30 pages on Sydney (it has 90). That's plenty for a country guide, and Frommer's gives a good variety of restaurants, hotels, and sights both in the cities and the countryside. Don't expect 90 pages to say it all about a city of 4 million. Check the Internet, AA club guides, city books, tour companies, and spend all the time in Oz. And buy this book. It's the most complete I've seen.

Pretty accurate however some of the prices listed in the Guide Book are outdated so double check all quoted prices.
