About the book

Bookcover: Why I love Australia by Bronwyn Bancroft, 2011.

Gorges that plummet into serpentine shadows ...

Cloaks of white that drape the rocky crags of snowy mountains ...

In this magnificent celebration of country, Bronwyn Bancroft uses both images and words to explore the awe-inspiring beauty of the Australian continent, and to express the depth of her feelings for it.
