Description
For the many thouands of visitors heading to Australia for the 2000 Olympics & the millions of armchair travelers who will tune into the Olympics, this collection of stories will captivate & enchant those fascinated by the land down under. From outback to rain forest, Great Barrier Reef to the Red Center, Australia offers a chance for adventure beyond your wildest dreams. Whether it's biking across the Nullarbor Plateau, drifting through a billlibong searching for crocs, surfing the big one, or walking a Songline, you will find it in OZ & in this collection of true & fascinating stories that reveal the many facets of Australia. Most people have a particular set image of Australia, such as the Opera House or Ayers Rock, yet these famous icons do little justice to the abundance of Australia's natural treasures & its cultural diversity. Australia offers a wealth of travel experiences from the drama of the Outback & the spectacle of the Great Barrier Reef to thecosmopolitanism of Sydney. Notable aiuthors include Paul Theroux, Robyn Davidson, Tim Cahill, Bruce Chatwin, Robert Hughes, Tony Horwitz, Jill Ker Conway, Pico Iyer, Ronald Wright & more.
