Wildlife and Wilderness in the Waterfall Country is a wonderfully detailed guide to the New South Wales Mid North Coast and the Great Escarpment — the Waterfall Country east of the Dividing Range.

Within easy reach of Sydney and Brisbane, the Waterfall Country has spectacular scenery and is of great importance for wildlife. Comprising a wide variety of habitats, soil types and climate, the region is home to a diverse range of wildlife, many uncommon or endangered, and offers visitors excellent bushwalking, kayaking and other activities.

This book is a practical guide to experiencing the best of the Waterfall Country, detailing wilderness walks and activities, and offering first-hand accounts from those living and working in the region. Containing useful information on how to safely explore the region, it covers what to wear, what to take with you, what to do if you get lost, and how to deal with minor injuries and snakebite.

Illustrated throughout with stunning colour photographs, Wildlife and Wilderness in the Waterfall Country is an ideal guide for students, teachers, tourists, bushwalkers, and anyone interested in this beautiful region.



 "This book is beautifully illustrated and some photographs are simply stunning. It is a good introduction to this wonderful part of the world and would be a good companion to anyone travelling in the region."
Helene Martin, Linnean Society of New South Wales Newsletter, No. 127
