About the Book

A relatively comprehensive guide to the Great Southern Land by arguably Australia's oldest newspaper. Now in its 11th edition, this full-colour guide to contemporary Australia has been touted as the most comprehensive insight into the lucky country since Microsoft's Encarta. Initially written for those venturing for the first time beyond Betoota's city limits, Betoota's Australia has become the go-to bible for anyone looking to uncover the real Australia behind the headlines.

The places, the people, the politics, the language, the sport and much more are here perfectly articulated by what is arguably our country's oldest newspaper, The Betoota Advocate, which can boast more readers than The Australian.

It's the type of quality publication we've come to expect from a news organ never hamstrung by editorial standards, and features pictures, profiles and fairly up-to-date maps, as well as some frankly incredible facts and stats. Compiled by the paper's editors - former News of the World deputy editor Errol Parker and the home-grown Clancy Overell - Betoota's Australia brings the Great Southern Land to life.

‘It reigns supreme as the global purveyor of eternal truth.'- Hon. Barnaby Joyce
‘Nothing finer has ever come out of Betoota.'- Hon. Anthony Albanese
‘Betoota is not just a place, it's a state of mind.' - Hon. Bob Katter
