SHORTLISTED 2019 WILDERNESS SOCIETY ENVIRONMENT AWARD FOR CHILDREN'S LITERATURE
My Australia is a poetic journey across the Australian landscape. Celebrating both the ancient and modern Australia, the book invites readers to travel across the delights of our continent - from dry deserts to lush rainforests, from high mountains to stormy seashores, from winding rivers to fertile swamplands - all the magical places that are my Australia. With colourful illustrations by Garry Fleming (creator of Bollygum), Julie Murphy's story is beautifully simple, and sure to excite young readers, encouraging a greater awareness and appreciation of our precious and irreplaceable natural places. (The poem is followed by factual information about Australian natural environments, illustrated with stunning photographs).
