In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Lonely Planet co-founder Tony Wheeler has been described as the 'patron saint of the world's backpackers and adventure travellers'. In this, his latest offering, he takes us on a virtual journey around a selection of Australia's 3,000 or so islands - from the postcard-perfect beaches and turquoise waters of islands of Queensland's tropical coast to the remote and rugged volcanic outcrops of the subantarctic region.
Discover the unique fauna and stunning natural features of Australia's islands, and journey through time as Tony reveals the fascinating stories behind the tourist brochures. Shipwrecks and bloodshed, murder and mutiny, giant rats and feral goats, and the often-disturbing legacy of colonisation - the histories of Australia's islands are as varied as their landscapes.
Part travel guide, part nature handbook, part personal reflection, Islands of Australia will appeal to adventure seekers and armchair travellers alike.
