The Sights
Whether you want see koalas and penguins up close and personal at Phillip Island, watch the sun set from Sydney Harbor, or hike around the base of the breathtaking Ayers Rock, See It Austrailia will take you there. Accessibly written to help you navigate throughout the country without missing a thing, each attraction includes exact admission prices, what galleries and museums not to miss, and where to stop for quick bites and refreshing drinks along the way. Sights are also rated for their “value”, “walkability”, “historic and cultural interest”, plus we suggest fantastic “photo stops” and entertaining and age-appropriate “kid-friendly” attractions throughout the book.

What to Do?
Our shopping guide will tell you where to get local souvenirs for every budget, from an Aboriginal boomerang to precious stones. But, Austrailia has much more to offer than just sight-seeing and shopping. Fodor’s See It Austrailia provides insider information on classical, theatrical, and cinematic performances, nightlife, spectator and activity sports, and festivals and events.

Atlas and Maps
Detailed neighborhood maps are incorporated throughout the book to help you navigate on historic walks, shopping tours, or to find a restaurant. Plus, a 16-page atlas details each road and path with highlights of important landmarks, parks, metro stations, and car parking areas.
