World Heritage Splendour of the Greater Blue Mountains
A landmark publication on the
Greater Blue Mountains, celebrating in images and words
one of Australia’s most popular and magnificent
wild regions. This is the latest book from resident

of gorge, cliff and sweeping forest vistas to the exquisite
detail of bark, bush, waterfall and rock. Remote wilderness
to surprising views of familiar landmarks—Thirlmere
Lakes, Kowmung River, Wild Dog Mountains, Jamison Valley,
Grose Valley, Wolgan, Colo, Yengo, Gardens of Stone
