  • The text is richly illustrated with photos and explanatory diagrams, making it suitable for armchair travellers too. 
  • Maps for all the routes indicate key geosites, with GPS readings to pinpoint their location.
This is a must-have handbook for travellers in the region, or for anyone wanting to know more about our rocks and landforms.
