The third edition of Budget Rest Areas Around Australia is the ultimate guide to Australia's best free and low-cost rest areas. It is a fully updated guide listing 2000 rest areas across the country, all of which have been carefully selected and star-rated by the authors. The book is organised by highway with the rest areas listed in the order they are found on the road, making this guide incredibly useful and easy to use. Each rest area listing comes with icons that will tell you at a glance what amenities are available - meals, fuel, dog friendly and more - and a picture of the area so you'll know what to expect when you arrive.

Each listing is shown on a fully illustrated reference map, making navigation a breeze. With additional tips and suggestions from the authors about what to see along your journey, this book is a one-stop shop for those who spend a lot of time on the road.

    I ordered this book (sight unseen) hoping it would be ideal for my sister and brother-in-law who are travelling Australia for a few years. I arranged with Booktopia to have the book sent Post Restante to Maryborough, VIC as they were staying there for a few days. It arrived ready for collection at the post office exactly on time. During each phone call to my sister, she tells me how absolutely perfect this book is. She refers to it as her "Travelling Bible". They had been using the internet to research camping sites; however, she has said that this book surpasses every internet camping website, with more descriptions and more listed camp sites. She has recommended this book to others during their travels, so I would like to take this opportunity to tell others through this review regarding its usefulness, on my sister's high recommendation.
