In his native Australia, Steve Parish – author, photographer and publisher – is something of an iconic figure, recognized across the continent for his pioneering underwater photography, commitment to conservation and championing of all things Australian.  A novel addition to the Bradt Eccentric range, unlike previous titles this takes images as its focus, accompanied by a very personal text, both of which draw extensively on Steve Parish's 30 years' experience photographing and exploring Australia.

Parish's lifelong enjoyment of his fun-loving country's more wacky elements is celebrated in style, including sculptures like the Big Lobster at Kingston, loo art, bizarre letterboxes, mad hatters and wheelie bin facelifts. Wildlife, too, is covered – what could be more odd than the weirdest of Australian creatures, the platypus?
