Introducing the Rough Guide to East Coast Australia
by Emma Gregg (et al)

Rough Guide to East Coast Australia is an essential guide to the classic travellers’ territory which stretches from Melbourne and the coast of Southeast Victoria to Cape York in Far North Queensland.

Full-colour sections highlight the region’s wildlife, ecotourism opportunities and watersports, including the quintessential East Coast pursuits of surfing on Bondi Beach and the Gold Coast, scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef, and sailing in the Whitsundays.

The main guide takes you to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Surfers Paradise, Cairns and all the other hotspots as well as heading way off the beaten track to discover the real Australia. The book describes remote and unspoilt beaches where kangaroos hop along the shore, alternative country towns with a character all their own, and unforgettable side-trips to the Great Ocean Road, the Torres Strait Islands and Uluru.

Places to stay to suit every budget – the funkiest hostels, the glitziest resorts and the leafiest rainforest ecolodges – are covered in detail. The guide also features hand-picked restaurant and nightlife recommendations, plus details of where to go for the very best surfing, hiking, sailing, diving and wildlife-watching.
