A very useful and eye-opening book which will inspire people to step outside their front doors and discover the amazing world of wildlife that is all around us. Packed full of inspiring stories and tips, each chapter enthuses readers about the incredible variety of wildlife experiences and species that can be found close to home, and helps them to ‘tune in’ to nature.

If you thought you knew everything there was to know about your local wildlife, and seen everything there is to see, then think again. This unique guide to the birds, animals and invertebrates that can be found close to the average Australian home will offer useful help and advice to all nature enthusiasts, whether long-standing converts or just starting out.

Engaging text explains fascinating and little-known facts about the creatures in question, while accompanying illustrations comprise a series of the author’s stunning images. It gives tips on how to locate species which might be in your neighborhood but you never knew were there, and also imparts fascinating and little-known facts about some of the more common everyday species.

The book, with its hundreds of images of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects and spiders, has the primary aim of encouraging readers to open their eyes to the wonders of nature, and to the astounding diversity of wildlife that is never far away. Be warned though, you’ll never look at your local wildlife in the same way! All in all this is an essential addition to the library of any nature enthusiast.
