I will be travelling to Australia in October this year. The Rough Guide to Australia was published in November 2011. Will a new edition be published before long? Just want to be sure before I buy the 2011 edition
I’m also planning on heading out to Oz in September/October and would like to see what RoughGuides have to offer
From my experience with guide books, the very “latest” edition isn’t all that much different than the previous one. November 2011 is only 18 months, nothing will have changed dramatically – just add a couple of dollars to the accommodation list, ditto for meals etc., check the currency converter (I use XE) and you should be right.
The next Rough Guide to Australia will be published in April 2014, so I’m afraid it won’t be out in time for your trip in October. As Captain Courageous said, the current edition will still serve you well!
@ Captain Courageous: You’re absolutely right, I guess they haven’t moved the Sydney Opera House to Melbourne in the meantime
@ Helen: Thanx, at least now I know I can buy the 2011 edition without running the risk that between now and October a new edition will be published The current edition will serve me well, no doubt about that!
