Quite a hard thing to give advice on; it depends on which writing style and way to organize information you prefer. Personally I always go for lonely planets, but I know other people who can't stand them.
I'd definitely go for a guide for all of Australia, though. Chances are you'll want to see a fair bit of the country during your time there, and it's good to be able to leaf through a guide and get your mind working on possible ways to string itineraries together and where all else you'd like to visit.

Hey there

I always go with Lonely Planet - recommended by a mate of mine whose travelled loads.
There easy to use and very handy.


Hope it helps
