A totally excellent book with top illustrations, this book has the quality that you wouldn't expect in a free download. Written mainly for the budget traveller off the beaten track, the first section gives advice on all the activities that put the Real Australia into your tour.
The second section is a selection of stories about the other Australia that tourists don't normally see. It's told by a master raconteur. Mike Dixon brings out the character of true Australians in a way you won't get from a Lonely Planet guide.
