Australia is a vast land with many faces.
There is the Australia of the Aboriginal people, where every landscape is full of meaning. There is the Australia that the last two centuries have seen changed into a mosaic of cities and towns, farms and properties, bushland and managed National Parks.
There is the Australia whose fascinating life is sometimes not even suspected - the Australia of koala, platypus and kangaroo, colourful birds, remarkable reptiles and fantastic undersea life. This is the Australia of billabongs and wetlands, desert and coastal heath, mountains and brilliant tropical coral reefs, which Steve Parish has been discovering and recording on film for over thirty years.
For this superb book, to inspire readers to 'Discover Australia' for themselves, Steve has chosen scenes from the big cities and the small outback towns, wildlife portraits and pictures of Australians at home, at work and at play. There are stunning images of the outback, of Australia's marvellous wildflowers, of the rainforest, the Red Centre and much more.
In these pages of superb images and evocative words the reader will 'Discover Australia', in all its diversity, its wild majesty and intimate natural secrets.
'Discover Australia' with Steve Parish as your guide and companion.
