Product Details

The Centre is the first natural history of this region for 100 years and as such it is the culmination of a broad spectrum of study and analysis of this little-understood part of the world.

Part 1; traces the geological history of central Australia through the passage of one of the world’s oldest rivers, The Finke. It’s course flows through all the typical desert ecosystems of Australia, from the rugged almost impenetrable flanks of the MacDonnell Ranges to the Simpson Desert.

Part 2; explores the diverse ecosystems and all that live therein, contesting the erroneous ‘dead heart’ myth, to reveal a rich array of animal and plant communities.
