AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A new Aussie book of opposites that captures the real flavour of the Aussie way of life.

'Australia is a land of complete opposites, from the beach to the bush, and the rainforest to the desert.

'In this country "down under", there are people who live above the ground in houses on stilts and those who live in dugouts below the ground. There are daytime animals and those that emerge only in the night. There are bushies and townies, jillaroos and jackaroos, the Melbourne Cup and the Camel Cup, the Henley-on-Todd regatta (which takes place on dry land) and the Sydney to Hobart race.

'Our climate, flora and fauna, landscape and lifestyle are bursting with charmingly quirky opposites that will fascinate readers of all ages.' (From the publisher's website.)
