Top End : Life in Australia’s Top End by David Hancock

$45.00 inc. GST

This book encompasses what author and photographer David Hancock believes is wonderful in life in the Top End – magnificent scenery and wildlife, dramatic weather, vibrant Aboriginal culture and innovative people pursuing interesting lives. Other parts of Australia have these attributes but nowhere are they brought together in such dynamic fashion as the Top End of the Northern Territory.

This book takes even the best-travelled readers to places they haven’t been, to meet Australians they are unlikely to encounter anywhere else.

The Arnhem Land plateau is an ancient and forbidding landscape of layered sandstone, cut deeply by gorges and crevasses. Remote and rugged, it is one of the most inaccessible and least disturbed environments left on earth. Aboriginal people have lived here for more than 60,000 years – their extraordinary artistic record, adorning the walls and ceilings of thousands of rock shelters, is unparalleled.
