publishing house title description
Lonely Planet Publications (Australia) Australia (English)
Comprehensive travel guide book and my personal number one. In addition to general parts about historz and culture, Aboriginal art and nature you'll find a description of city or sight, mostly with information about arrival a.s.o. You'll find recommended accomodation and places to eat for different budget categories, listet with telephone numbers, which is very convenient for making reservations. This travel guide is in order of national states and contains regional maps respectively. I recommend to use the newest edition for being up to date with prices, telephone numbers a.s.o. (latest editon from year 2000).
Baedeker (Germany) Australien (German)
A travel guide with comprehensive information and very good explanations and figures. The only disadvantage is the alphabetical order which will be unconvenient if you plan tours that are different from the recommended ones. On the other hand you get a nice map (e.g. for car tours). This book is as well good for looking up items.
