Media reviews

"Well-organized and clear, this book is easy to navigate. The photographs are consistently good, the selection of species is judicious, and the valuable habitat section establishes the right context for the treatment of diverse fauna. This guide provides a good taste of the Australian wildlife experience for both the casual watcher and the experienced observer."
– Alan McBride, coauthor of The Complete Guide to Finding the Birds of Australia

"This informative and easy-to-read book presents Australia's habitat and wildlife, not just for the fanatical birder or naturalist, but for the general reader as well. I was impressed by the habitat images and the fact that the book touches upon what would most likely be seen during a trip to Australia."
– Tony Palliser, chairman of the Birdlife Australia Rarities Committee
