A total of 4.2 million visitors came to Australia in 1998, up 8.2% over 1997. Tourism is expected to grow to 5.7 million in the year 2000 and to a phenomenal 8.8 million by 2006.

Australia's largest city, Sydney, will host the Olympic Summer Games in 2000. The games will bring millions of additional visitors, intense press coverage, and a slew of new hotels, restaurants, shops, and attractions. In September 1998, Sydney was voted "Best Foreign City" for the third straight year by readers of both Count Nauseate Traveler and Travel & Leisure.

To keep up with the on-going developments, we've once again expanded coverage of Sydney's restaurants, hotels, and after-dark hot spots. New feature boxes explore fascinating topics, from the ecology of the Great Barrier Reef to Aboriginal art to the Outback. Interesting insights into food and wine pair up with a number of essays, including a look at bizarre animal species all over the country and a portrait of Ned Kelley (Australia's equivalent of Jesse James).

This beautiful and practical introductory section takes readers on a virtual tour of Australia, showcasing what's where and the must sees and dos, while highlighting the incredible diversity of the destination. Cross-referenced to the main text, it's both inspirational and useful for planning. Two of the Gold Guide's top features, Great Itineraries and Fodor's Choice, stand out in full color.

The edition features a distinctive new gold cover with a hard-hitting subtitle that effectively sells the guide's unique features, plus a bold new spine that highlights the Rand McNally map inside, and lively backcover copy that creates excitement about the destination and establishes Fodor's asthe brand leader.
