Bob Brown and Paul Thomas on Green Nomads Wild Places
The City of Perth Library, UWA Institute of Advanced Studies and Boffins Books are delighted to present Bob Brown and Paul Thomas on Green Nomads Wild Places.About Green Nomads Wild Places
Green Nomads Wild Places is a photographic and written record of a journey that took them first by yacht and then by road along the coasts and byways of southern Australia. They floated in hidden harbours and on ancient rivers, climbed over age-old rock formations, and camped at isolated Bush Heritage Australia properties, revelling in the natural beauty. Bob Brown and Paul Thomas remind us of the natural world's extraordinary diversity.
