OUT OF PRINT.  The Great Western Woodlands is a delightful area to visit, with numerous granite outcrops, secluded bush camping areas and historic attractions scattered across this large chunk of Western Australia’s heartland.  It is also a culturally significant place for Aboriginal people who continue to have a strong connection to their country.  Covering almost 61 million hectares – about the same size as England – this continuous band of native vegetation stretches from the edge of the WA Wheatbelt to Kalgoorlie-Boulder in the north, to the inland deserts to the north-east and the Nullarbor Plain to the east. The Great Western Woodlands is the largest remaining intact Mediterranean climate woodland on Earth.  More than a fifth of Australia’s native plant species (more than 3,000 species) are found here, including 20 per cent of Australia’s eucalypt species (more than 160 species).

The second section of the guide includes information and photographs of trees, wildflowers, mammals, reptiles and birds
