Whether you’re exploring the whole country, a region or a city, we have you covered:

☆ Practicalities section covering everything from transport to travelling with kids.

☆☆NOTE☆☆: While this app is incredibly easy to use, Australia is a big place, we cover it in detail, and our maps can locate you anywhere in the country (all without an internet connection). As such, the file size is ~100MB so you’ll need some patience as it downloads. It’ll be worth it.

You can also buy this Australia Travel Guide from within the free Lonely Planet Travel Guides app - a great idea if you want to view, purchase and store other Lonely Planet apps.
