SOUTH Australia? Where’s that?

The festival state doesn’t get a mention in Lonely Planet’s new Best of Australia guide book.

The new edition, released today, offers up the “Ultimate Australia itinerary” — and while every other state and territory earns an inclusion, not one of the book’s 324 pages is dedicated to South Australia.

Despite a brief reference to Barossa Valley shiraz as one of Australia’s “world-beating” wines, the guide book doesn’t actually recommend a visit to the region.

Its suggested one-week itinerary covers Sydney to the Whitsundays, with a two-week holiday adding the NT.

Visits to Victoria, WA, Tasmania and the ACT are factored in as add-ons only for those staying longer than two weeks.

Tourists are advised to head to Fremantle and the Margaret River then “back to Perth for a flight east”. From Melbourne, the book highlights a road trip on the Great Ocean Road, but doesn’t suggest continuing towards South Australia.

The “Best of” series is a new take on Lonely Planet’s classic “blue-spine” country guide books, with Best of Australia featuring 12 destinations.

“Lonely Planet’s Best of guides are designed to be the only toolkits travellers will need for the perfect trip to each country,” the publisher says.
