Australian Alps is a fascinating guide to Kosciuszko, Alpine, and Namadgi National Parks. This new edition is illustrated in full cover and features animals, plants, and natural features of this spectacular region. It reveals stories of the region's turbulent human history, including European exploration, gold rushes, and more recently the Snowy Mountains Scheme, and tourism growth.
Ideal for field trips, it will make a wonderful memento as well as a great reference for future trips. Written by a specialist with over 25 years' experience in community education in and about the Australian Alps National Parks, this new edition updates many important themes, including the involvement of Aboriginal people in the region, catchment function and condition, pest plants and animals, fire and the issue of climate change.
The book acts as a detailed companion to park interpretive material and to topic-specific field guides, and also caters for readers who want a broad overview of areas of interest to visit in the mountains.
