From Boiling Billy Publications:
Alpine Australia – A celebration of the Australian Alps portrays the stunning high country region unique to the Alpine areas of New South Wales and Victoria – the areas which are often snow covered for a number of months each winter. This superbly photographed coffee table pictorial brings this magnificent region to a wider audience, allowing readers to become immersed in the beauty which alpine Australia offers by way of awe-inspiring images, many in panoramic format.
In New South Wales readers will be transported to the country’s highest peaks running along the spine of the Great Dividing Range and the stark beauty of the Kosciuszko Main Range, while in Victoria the state’s loftiest peaks are captured in magnificent detail, from the remote Mt Bogong to the winter playgrounds of Mt Buller and Mt Hotham.
Featuring over 150 stunning images, Alpine Australia – A celebration of the Australian Alps is sure to appeal to all those who have an affinity with Australia’s snow- covered peaks and will entice those who have yet to discover the beauty of this truly amazing region.
