This book contains excellent colour photographs, large botanical illustrations and full descriptions of the 121 species found in the ACT.
Specific local distribution notes will aid the ACT orchid hunter. Broader distribution notes for Australia and overseas will assist those looking for orchids in similar habitats elsewhere.
