One of the great services provided by the UW-Stevens Point International Programs office is its library of guidebooks and other resources. If you’re thinking about the Australia winterim 2015-16 trip, you can check out several guidebooks or videos and learn a bit more about what Australia has to offer.
Among them are the Lonely Planet printed guidebooks to Australia and to Sydney & New South Wales (where the UWSP winterim is focused), as well as that publisher’s DVD version of “Australia: The South East.” I’ll be reviewing each of these, as well as a number of other guides and resources, over the next few months.
It turns out Lonely Planet started as an Australian company, so one would expect its Australia products to be excellent. (It does guidebooks for the world, though — it recently listed 489 different ones on its web page.)
