This is a fantastic guide to everything Melbourne has to offer. Not only is it useful for people without disabilities, it is jam packed with information no matter what disability you have.
I was very surprised how much relevant information there is. It is very comprehensive. Whatever you need to know, you will find in this book, irrelevant if you have a disability or not.
It all at your fingertips; information on tourism; access; venues; organisations; sports; I could literally keep going for ever.
I recommend it to everyone.
