Finding Australian Birds is a guide to the special birds found across Australia's vastly varied landscapes. From the eastern rainforests to central deserts, Australia is home to some 900 species of birds. This book covers over 400 Australian bird watching sites conveniently grouped into the best birding areas, from one end of the country to the other. This includes areas such as Kakadu in the Top End and rocky gorges in the central deserts of the Northern Territory, the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, rainforests distributed along the eastern Australian seaboard, some of the world's tallest forests in Tasmania, the Flinders Ranges and deserts along the iconic Strzelecki and Birdsville Tracks in South Australia, and the mallee temperate woodlands and spectacular coastlines in both Victoria and south west Western Australia. Each chapter begins with a brief description of the location, followed by a section on where to find the birds, which describes specific birdwatching sites within the location's boundaries, and information on accommodation and facilities. The book also provides a comprehensive 'Bird Finding Guide', listing all of Australia's birds with details on their abundance and where exactly to see them. Of value to both Australian birdwatchers and international visitors, this book will assist novices, birders of intermediate skill and keen 'twitchers' to find any Australian species.

This volume traces the 300-year history of bird art in Australia, from the crudely illustrated records of the earliest European voyages of discovery to the diversity of artwork available at the start of the 21st century. It is a history inseparable from the development of Australian ornithology. Against a background of establishment of the country itself, naval draftsmen, convicts, officers, settlers, naturalists, artists and scientists alike contributed both to the art and to science.

Peter Slater needs no introduction to Australian natural history enthusiasts. He has been publishing books celebrating the country's wildlife for many decades, not least the renowned Slater Field Guide to Australian Birds. For Visions of Wildness Peter has again teamed up with Sally Elmer to produce a remarkable collection of photographs and artworks covering all aspects of Australian nature, from birds, mammals and reptiles to minibeasts, plants and fungi. And not forgetting the amazing landscapes!Although today it is difficult to find any true 'wilderness' which has not been affected by the activities of humans, the authors show that there is much in the Australian natural world that remains uninfluenced and there are myriads of living things that remain 'wild'. They live their lives with no regard for us, behaving naturally, even in environments we have despoiled. The authors have spent their lives observing, photographing and painting some of them, in the bush, in deserts and at home (which some wild creatures regard as a convenient cave!).The resulting book is a collection of beautiful images depicting species and behaviours which are rarely seen by humans - a distillation of pictures taken from the authors' own collections which have been built up over many decades. In short this book is an essential addition to the library of any Australian wildlife enthusiast.
