What's Out There?
What’s Out There?: Amazing plants, rocks, creatures and cultures that make Australia extraordinary
A colourful picture book that every Australian child should have in their collection.
We all know about kangaroos, koalas and gum trees, but have you ever heard of the pademelon, handfish or idiot fruit tree? Would you recognise a wombat poo or the cry of a yellow wattlebird, or know how to say kangaroo in Guuguyimithirr?
Australia is old. Really old. We are the home of the oldest living plant, oldest animal fossils and the oldest continuing culture of people on Earth.
In 'What’s Out There', you can dig, dive and delve your way through Australia from the time of Gondwanaland and megafauna through to today, learning about some of the most amazing plants, rocks, creatures and cultures that make up this extraordinary country.
For ages six years and older
