Australian Backyard Naturalist

Australian Backyard Naturalist is the new book from award-winning Sydney-based writer Peter Macinnis. The sister publication, Australian Backyard Explorer, won the Eve Pownall award in the 2010 Children's Book Council of Australia Awards.

In his new book, Macinnis looks at the animals that inhabit the places in which we live, including mammals, birds, reptiles and spiders. The book is also full of fascinating scientific facts for both young and old as well as experiments for readers to do themselves.

Australian Backyard Naturalist features stunning illustrations from the National Library of Australia’s Pictures Collection.
