Australia, 5th Edition/Robinson, Carl/Paper/9622176992/S055-C2
The vast continent of Australia is still a place apart. It is the world's oldest continent, but little is known about its ancient past. There is a unique feel to Australia - the reversed seasons, flowers that don't smell, distinctive wildlife and, of course, its diverse people. Blessed by a near-perfect climate, life in Australia has a unique pace and Australians are among the most hospitable people on earth.
This highly readable guide is the perfect introduction to that wonderful continent. Each of Australia's states and territories is covered in separate sections, all extensively revised. Special topics give additional insight to aspects of daily life - pubs, wine, Aussie slang, sports, cinema and the uneasy status of the native Aborigines - while literary excerpts give some interesting views of the country.
