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.
