Gorges that plummet into serpentine shadows ...Cloaks of white that drape the rocky crags of snowy mountains ...In this magnificent celebration of country, Bronwyn Bancroft uses both images and words to explore the awe-inspiring beauty of the Australian continent, and to express the depth of her feelings for it.

    Comments about Why I Love Australia:

    A beautiful piece of Australiana. The story and illustrations are based on Indigenous Australian (Aboriginal) perspectives and view of Australia. The book is mostly about the illustrations but these are accompanied by brief poetic lines that describe the scenes and their significance.
