"This book is an interesting, practical, an well-informed guide to all aspects of reserves managed by the National Parks Service in Victoria: history, geology, flora, fauna, walks, access, ad recreational capabilities.
The State is divided into several parts, which are shown on a map of Victoria, and within these parts each national park has its own chapter with a detailed, localised map that shows the main features of the park and the various entry points. Other reserves, such as State parks, coastal parks, etc., are grouped into one chapter at the end of each part.
From Lower Glenelg in the extreme south-west to Burrowa-Pine Mountain in the far north-east, from the mountains and snow of the Alps to the lowland of the desert, every conceivable type of soil, vegetation, animal, and beauty is described within these pages."
