Australia is one of the most popular long-haul tourist destinations for backpackers and families alike, successfully exporting the image of a carefree, "no worries", BBQ, beach and beers culture around the world. But that's only one side of the story. This volume lets you know what the tourist board won't and looks at Australia's turbulent history and cultural changes. Here are the facts and faces of Australia's most notorious crimes and criminals. You can read about: Ivan Milat, Australia's notorious hitchhiker killer; serial killing down under; the perplexing disappearance of Peter Falconio and other vanishing Britons; the true story of the Port Arthur massacre; the "dingo baby" case; biker gangs on the rampage; backpacker hell and much more.show more
