Synopsis: The ancient island-continent of Australia is home to an astonishing variety of habitats and wildlife unmatched anywhere in the world. Journey through this amazing country and take in its breathtaking landscapes and fascinating plants, birds and animals that have adapted to life in these fragile and demanding environments. Discover the immense geologic and climatic forces that have shaped and reshaped this ancient land, from the stunning rock formations of the remote west coast and the foreboding deserts of the red centre to the incredible richness and diversity of the tropical north and the iconic eucalypt forests of the south-east. Also featured prominently are intimate portraits of the many creatures that inhabit the wilds down under: the koala, kangaroo and saltwater crocodile; the brolga, kookaburra and wedge-tailed eagle; the bilby, budgerigar and thorny devil, to name just a few. Over a period of ten years, photographer Theo Allofs has been drawn back time and again to the Australian wilderness. The result is a collection of exceptional photographs that capture the most characteristic and impressive regions of this great southern land. Through the text, biologist and writer Nicola Markus reveals the forces that shaped Australia and its flora, fauna, and Aboriginal peoples, who were the first humans to settle there. Together they offer a truly remarkable insight into wild Australia.
