Australia is an extraordinary country. Our past is full of pioneers and bushrangers, brave soldiers and record-breaking athletes. We've created foods eaten nowhere else in the world and we're the home of Big Things. Australians are intrepid explorers, celebrated artists and daring lifesavers. And many unusual creatures call Australia their home - on land and in the sky, underground and underwater, that's where you'll find them. This collection of time-honoured icons, legends, sporting heroes and unique animals places each in the spotlight - with fascinating facts, figures and breakout boxes to help bring them to life. Beware! Once you start devouring this Aussie feast you'll never want to stop. Written by Loretta Barnard, Christopher Cheng, Ann Ingram and Peggy O'Donnell. Illustrated by Gregory Rogers.
