Australia is a top vacation destination. Many people are daunted by the long flight and particularly Americans, often with only two weeks vacation, wonder where to start when planning a trip. This book is for those travelers who do not want to be constrained by a formal tour but who still want guidance in where to go and what to see in such a large country. These ten trips are organized into manageable 10 to 14 day itineraries designed to minimize the amount of time spent in transit and maximize time spent vacationing. Each trip is accompanied by photos, maps and local recommendations.
