Lonely Planet is a great source for info on traveling!
By Lindsay S.
Lonely Planet is a reputable source, would recommend this book (although may be a bit outdated). It gave me information regarding what I could expect when traveling to Australia for the first time. It was a great trip and I appreciated the information in this text ahead of time. Be cautious when traveling to Australia, it is SUPER expensive! I think breakfast for two was something like $60 US dollars and that was NOT anything too fancy....eggs, spinach, toast, and fruit.

I received this book with 4 completely blank pages in the Cairns section. which is the place we are going to be spending the most time!! and i have no idea which parts are missing so now i have to do separate research anyway. :(
