Overview

This wonderful book evokes all of Australia's many moods and dramatic vistas in engaging text by Roff Smith and stunning images by renowned photographer Sam Abell. Text and pictures explore the colorful history and distinctive cultures that make the land down under so irresistible and unforgettable.

At once a young and vibrant nation of immigrants and a place inhabited for 60,000 years by Aboriginal tribes whose haunting art and ancient traditions are among the oldest on Earth, Australia boasts the world's biggest cattle ranch, some of its richest mineral deposits, and a wild, wondrous landscape of lush rain forest and forbidding desert, snowy mountains and tropical oceans bejeweled with the colorful corals of the Great Barrier Reef. Australia is truly a world unto itself.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two new titles to join the "National Geographic Traveler" family contain a fountain of information on the destinations covered. Detailed color maps guide the traveler on walking or driving tours, describing must-see sites along the way. There are historical descriptions and informational tidbits, such as the two-page definition of Art Deco found in Miami & the Keys. Each section contains visitor contact numbers and addresses. The end of each guide contains a listing of hotels, motels, restaurants, entertainment, and other activities available. Of course, mention must be made of the hundreds of beautiful National Geographic-quality color photographs peppered throughout each volume. In short, these books are everything a travel guide should be with that special National Geographic touch. Although a bit pricey, they are the ideal size for taking along on a trip. Recommended for all libraries with travel sections.--Sandra Knowles, Henderson Cty. P.L., NC Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
