Editorial Reviews

'One of the great travel destinations in the world is the Great Barrier Reef. The planet's largest coral reef system, the Great Barrier Reef in the Coral Sea stretches over 1,400 miles and features some 900 islands. Author Ulrike Lemmin-Woolfrey suggests the best diving locations as well as the best choices for cruising the reef (whether organized, private or doing it yourself). Sydney in all its splendor takes up a big chunk of the book too: its culture, nightlife, shopping, dining and, of course, beaches.The book concludes with a wildlife guide (sea life, mammals, reptiles, birds and insects) and a backgrounder section on Australian cultural values: Australia prides itself as being the land of the 'fair go,' or giving someone a chance.'- The Chicago Tribune
