The last hotel where I stayed, I manged to grab the book “Australia” by travbugs. Below is my brief review:-
a) Awesome pictures. If you have 10 minutes with the book, please go through the pics.
b) Read about the history and culture. It is good to know, what’s with the “White” australians, Aboriginals and the Chinese you see everywhere.
c) There are some handy numbers in every city you can visit. What i did was note down the important places and numbers. Ofcourse you can look up on internet, but there’s no better thing than finding everything at one place.
