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.
Keith Painter’s new book covers 50 significant events with over 280 illustrations of the ceremonies, the people who took part, the documented records and current views. Some historic photos have never been published before.

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.
