NATIVE FAUNA OF THE GREATER BLUE MOUNTAINS WORLD HERITAGE AREA

This new book celebrates the outstanding diversity of the native fauna of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. It describes the distribution, abundance, habitat and conservation significance of every mammal, bird, reptile and frog species that has been reliably recorded in the area since European settlement.


The authors hope that this book will encourage a deeper understanding of the wildlife of the Greater Blue Mountains. They further hope that, like us, future generations will have the opportunity to know and be inspired by this magnificent fauna.

Aboriginal Heritage of the Blue Mountains

New from Kelvin Knox and Eugene Stockton.
Before British colonists found a way across the Blue Mountains, thousands of generations of Aboriginal people had lived here before them. They left traces of their life and culture in campsites, rock art, artefacts, axe grinding grooves, scarred trees and stone arrangements. Their heritage includes language, stories, memories and ceremonies. It is for the present generation to wonder at this heritage which binds the past to the present.

An Evening with Todd Alexander

Ten years ago Todd Alexander and his partner Jeff had a successful and comfortable life in the city, but felt that something was missing. A trip to the Barossa Valley made them realise that there was a different and much more rewarding life to be had away from the city, on the land.
Once I was the poster boy for corporate success, but now I’m crashing through the bush in a storm in search of a missing pig. How the hell did we end up here? Needless to say it took guts, determination and a lot of hard work.Todd’s new memoir Thirty Thousand Bottles of Wine and a Pig Called Helga tells this story.

Come and hear Todd entertain and inspire you with his humorous and heartfelt account of his tree-change at:
