Great Southern Land

Front Cover
ABC Books, 2013 - Art - 304 pages
GREAT SOUTHERN LAND is the beautiful illustrated hardback book accompanying ABC 1's landmark television series. Drawing an audience of more than 3.5 million when it went to air in late 2012, GREAT SOUTHERN LAND was compared to David Attenborough's productions and described variously as 'a revelation', 'must see', 'breathtaking' and 'will make you proud to be an Australian'. GREAt SOUtHERN LAND is an epic journey across Australia, from the top of the Snowy Mountains to the tropical wilds of the Gulf of Carpentaria; the irrigated farms of the Murray Darling Basin to the ancient forests of tasmania. It is the pictorial record of our remarkable story - revealing otherwise hidden patterns, networks and systems that keep our population of 23 million people moving, fed, alive and thriving in a huge, remote, dry continent. Written by series producers and writers Ivan O'Mahoney and Steve Bibb, with an introduction by presenter Professor Steve Simpson, and including the photography of Richard Woldendorp, GREAt SOUtHERN LAND features more than 300 incredible photographs of Australia from above.
