Our Country: Ancient Wonders by Mark Greenwood (Hardback) – Our Review


Our Review…

This is one for all the budding adventurers out there! Have you ever wondered how Uluru was formed or why we have so many underground caves?

This book takes us on a geological history journey to all corners of Ancient Australia. From the Karlu Karlu or “The Devils Marbles” in the Northern Territory, all the way down to the Twelve Apostles on the Great Ocean Road, we see how these amazing formations came to be. At each site the author and illustrator suggest a rich indigenous history, which encourages us to think – what would it have been like to live in harmony with these places for so long, like First Nations people did?

With information about prehistoric creatures, ancient volcanoes, hidden caves and spectacular rocks this book is sure to inspire a road trip around Australia to find out more!

Perfect for readers from 5 years old onwards.
