“The vast Northern Territory of Australia is one of the most fascinating and exciting areas of the continent.
The variety of its landscapes is remarkable: in the south, great arid wastelands; in the north, steamy tropical vegetation teeming with wildlife.
Thousands of tourists each year flock to see its unique landforms: Ayers Rock, a massive solitary outcrop more than 1,000 feet high rising abruptly from the desert plain; The Olgas, mysterious dome-like peaks unlike anything else on the continent; The Devil’s Marbles, gigantic boulders strewn over several square miles like a giant’s playthings.
The Northern Territory is a land where areas are measured in thousands of square miles, and where the population of a large suburb is scattered over more than one sixth of the surface of Australia.
This book is a remarkable pictorial presentation of a strangely beautiful region, unchanged for thousands of years and still resisting the inevitable onslaught of modern civilisation.”
