The Scenic Rim is one of Queensland's great natural treasure troves. Scientists and naturalists have long been attracted to the region's diverse and unique fauna, but anyone can enjoy an outstanding wildlife experience. This pocket guide book introduces the reader to the extraordinary wildlife of the area. The species selected include some that are easily seen as well as others that are rare and secretive. There is little record of the ancient animals and plants that inhabited this area. However, a walk through the temperate rainforests of the region represents something of a walk into Australia's distant geological past.
