Andrews, Ray

Informative reading for anyone interested in learning more about our amazing continent.  This is the definitive record of Australia’s geography.  The places listed are not in the usual travel brochures and are not to be missed.

This is a unique story of the continent and islands of Australia. It scrutinises this nation through the lens of its geographic records. It explores Australia’s deserts, beaches, mountains, rivers, waterfalls, aquifers and lakes. But have you also wondered about Australian glaciers, or volcanoes? Where are the largest and oldest meteorite craters? What were the largest earthquakes? Where are the largest waves and why are marine megafauna attracted to submarine canyons that incise Australia’s continental shelf?
