Peter Rowland, Angus McNab & John Harris
Wildlife of the Australian Rainforests: A State-by-State Guide is a lavishly illustrated guide to 51 significant wildlife-watching sites in 22 bioregions around Australia.
Rainforests are found in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and Western Australia. Sites are generally open to the public, (some may require permits). Detailed accounts of the key vertebrates and invertebrates that can be found in the rainforests are given, to aid in their identification and as a tool for the reader to gain a deeper understanding of their habits and biology. Concise information on each site includes location descriptions, GPS coordinates, travel options and distances, relevant fees and permits, and an overview of some of the main tracks and trails.
