“In this book the splendour and isolation of the Australian coastline has been captured, for the first time in its entirety, in the pictures taken during a unique aerial circumnavigation of the great island-continent.  Photographed at low altitude from seaplanes, the shoreline is revealed as a landfall of breathtaking beauty.  Rocky headlands enclose hidden, snow-white beaches; mangrove-lined estuaries wind between shimmering coastal dunes; towering cliffs alternate with undulating green heathlands, and islands of every shape and size lie off the shore, interspersed with countless coral reefs.  Here can be seen places famous in our history, areas that have been hostile to man, and land forms that make Australia unique in world geography.”
