We all know about kangaroos, koalas and gum trees, but do Australian children really know about this country’s land, waters, wildlife and original inhabitants? Australia is old. Really old. We are the home of the oldest living plant, oldest animal fossils and the oldest continuing culture of people on earth. 

This book takes 6- to 10-year-olds on a colourful journey of Australia from the time of Gondwanaland and megafauna through to today. There are pages on ‘Australia’s Not-very-famous Animals’, ‘Who’s Poo?’ with scat and tracks of all shapes and sizes, 'Legends of Rock' all about the amazing qualities of our world-famous rocks, and the word ‘kangaroo’ in a range of Indigenous languages. 

With a colourfully chaotic mix of beautiful illustrations, eye-opening insights and fascinating facts, this 104-page story of Australia will amaze kids and adults alike.
