A completely revised and updated edition of this classic handbook of the native plants found from Newcastle to Nowra. With 1400 colour photographs and its authoritative text, this is a magnificent reference for anyone who loves the Australian bush.

In a handy portable format, Native Plants of the Sydney Region is the ideal companion for anyone who wants to put names to the plants they see in the bush.

Covering an area from Newcastle to Nowra, and westwards to the Great Dividing Range, Native Plants of the Sydney Region contains plant species from remote areas as well as those common in remnant suburban bushland. Many of the species described are also found along the whole of Australia's east coast and west to the slopes and plains.

This book is based on the authors' earlier editions of Native Plants of the Sydney District, which became the standard reference for bushwalkers, gardeners, bush care workers, environmentalists, botanists, landscape architects and students. It has been completely rewritten with descriptions of nearly 1400 plant species, some only recently discovered, as well as many new colour photographs and revised names in an up-to-date taxonomy.

'A superbly researched and printed book, breathtaking in its detail. This masterly work is an important contribution to the protection and understanding of our native flora.' - The Sun-Herald

'A marvellous book and a must for the Sydney nature lover.' - Tim Low

'Many living outside the area will wish to own this book, either because they are growing plants mentioned or because they will visit the area.' - The Age
