From a height of some 8 kilometres (5 miles), the passengers aboard a jumbo jet flying through a cloudless ultramarine sky look down over a vast striated plain, the ochre-colored landscape that comprises the greater part of Australia. Hours later, the first road, like a line drawn with a ruler, appears, then sporadic homesteads are glimpsed, their postage-stamp tin roofs glinting in the sun and looking far too small to be the hub of cattle stations larger than some European countries. Later, the farms shrink, the rolling plains grow greener, and the plane begins to descent over the box canyons of the bush-cloaked Blue Mountains. Grids of suburbia finally appear Red-roofed houses swathe the plains below and cluster more densely until, like the finale of a stage show, Sydney Harbour is revealed. The city sparkles in the sunshine by the jewel-like waterway, aptly dubbed 'the finest harbour in the world' by Sydney's founding father, Captain Arthur Phillip.
Australia's firstborn city is still the most magnificent. Sydney is the
New York of Australia. It is bigger, taller, brasher, livelier, and when the
sun is shining, it is breathtakingly beautiful. Soft cover, 160 pages. Published

Western Australia is an amazing place. I’ve been lucky enough to see the Monkey Mia dolphins, the Nambung Pinnacles and the Bungle Bungles amongst other extraordinary places. B(ut life would have been much easier if this book had been in my possession. This Lonely Planet guide gives you “the good oil” on where, when and how to visit this, the largest of Australia’s states. The desert wildflowers, one of the state’s natural wonders are included and warrant a highly useful color section on their own. There is the usual collection of maps and notes on such exotica as 4WD excursions. Highly recommended. Soft cover, 345 pages.
