Lisa, speaking of cliches, I recomment the book Downunder by Bill Bryson. He clearly loves Australia, this book is his vision of this country. It is very funny and interesting.

I'm deeply in love with those colors, red against blue. It started in the Katherine Gorge, and went on all the way down to Alice Spring and around Alice Spring. Yes, I know, it is a common feeling for the visitors of this part of the world...
This one if for the truck train, very exotic for me.
