Never before has a book like this been produced in Australia. But the technical advances in recent years have been so revolutionary that anyone with creative vision can now 'point and shoot with a Lumix' and end up with exceptional photographs of top publishable quality. This has created a fabulous level playing field for professionals and amateurs alike. Contains major sections from eight of the nation's top pro shooters: Bill Bachman, Hugh Brown, Leo Meier, Nick Rains, Frances Mocnik, Ted Rambeau, Peter Eastway and Ken Duncan.
They are joined by celebrity Ray Martin, as well as the very best from more than 7000 entries from a nationwide on-line amateur competition. The result is a superbly presented gallery of Australia: from the far-flung corners of the outback to the nation's unique cities, farms, people and wildlife. Stretching from the Kimberley to Tasmania, from the reef to the suburbs, this is Australia as it has never been captured before. All proceeds from the sale of this book go to the indigenous youth arts training program Walk a While.

This book takes pride of place on our coffee table. The photographs are wonderful and show the diversity of our wonderful country. It also encourages me to look for that one great shot in my photographic pursuits.
My bucket list is to travel to each of the destinations photographed.
