The Great Southern Reef will be published in May by CSIRO, and is an educational fiction picture book which will teach you a lot about the gorgeous reef at the bottom of Australia (not the other one!).

Written by Sue Whiting and published by Walker Books Australia, The Echidna Near My Place is a lovely story of a grandmother and granddaughter as they follow an echidna on its daily walk.

Part of the Nature Storybooks series, it is part narrative, part factual.

This is the sequel to By the Billabong (written by Maura Finn, published by Affirm Press)  It's the tale of a late afternoon stroll through the beautiful Australian landscape and our character's interaction with noisy baby animals.
