 Elephantine boabs dot the Kimberley region of Western Australia; cattle rub against giant bottle trees and ironbarks in Queensland, and strangler figs with 40-metre girths thrive in our northern rainforests. Snow gums and shining gums eke out their lives on our icy mountain tops and prehistoric-looking bunya pines, which once looked down on the dinosaurs, grow in a few isolated places in Australia's north-east.

Australia's Remarkable Trees explores the extraordinary lives of 50 of Australia's oldest, largest and most unusual trees. Richly illustrated with more than 500 photographs, writer Richard Allen and photographer Kimbal Baker went to the far reaches of Australia – travelling more than 60,000 kilometres – to photograph them and tell their stories.

Australia's Remarkable Trees is not just a celebration of Australia's great trees. It also prompts us to look to the future to see what lies in store for them. It is a call to arms to preserve and protect our oldest and most magnificent living things, and the forests and wilderness in which they live.


 Richard Allen has been a journalist for 20 years and has written on a wide variety of subjects for the Australian Financial Review, the Age, Good Weekend magazine, the Sunday Telegraph (UK) and BRW.

Kimbal Baker is a Melbourne-based freelance photographer with more than 30 years experience. His images have been published in many Australian and overseas publications.
