travel quote featured by top international travel blogger, Tracy's Travels in Time

Are you planning to visit Australia or possibly even move to Australia? I don’t know about you but I love finding out as much as possible about a place before I visit.  As well as reading blogs and travel guides I also enjoy reading fictional works associated with the country.

If Australia is a destination on your bucket list these are some of the books I highly recommend adding to your reading list!

This is my list of books about Australia to read before you visit but if you know of anything I have missed do let me know in the comments below!

    If you haven’t read the The Fortunes of Richard Mahoney yet, you really should. This has go to be my favourite classic Australia saga. It’s set around Melbourne and Ballarat and I read it years ago whilst travelling around those areas. It really gave me a lot of context.
