Magnificent Australia by Robert Coupe. Published by New Holland Publishers.
ISBN 1864362219. Recommended retail price $49.95.
Extreme landscapes, unusual fauna and flora and a multicultural population are all factors that contribute to the allure of Australia - the world's smallest continent and its largest island. From the vast interior, or 'red centre', with its harsh desertscapes and ancient, spiritually significant landforms to the treacherous Victorian coastline, weathered by the relentless fury o the Southern Ocean into dramatically carved cliffs and rocky outcrops, Australia is a land on a grand scale painted in an extravagant array of colors.
Truly a place of striking contrasts, Australia embraces images as diverse as the snow-capped peaks of the Snowy Mountains; the verdant rainforests of north Queensland; the golden wheat fields of the Darling Downs; the busy cosmopolitan cities that cling to the coastline; the blue waters of the Great Barrier Reef; and the sparsely populated isolation of the outback. Magnificent Australia captures the diversity and majestic beauty of this immense land, bringing it to life in a series of thematically arranged chapters that are lavishly illustrated with 250 photographs.
