A new book on the history of the Snowy Mountains and especially Kosciuszko National Park tells the story of how the park, against the odds, was established and protected for all Australians to enjoy. Kosciuszko: A Great National Park tells the story of land use transformation, from exploitation of the mountains for mining, logging, grazing and tourism developments to a focus on protection and conservation.
Authored by conservationist Dr Graeme Worboys and alpine historian Deirdre Slattery the new book examines the history - and the people who made it - of one of the great national parks of Australia, and indeed the world.
Join us in launching this significant tome of Australian environmental history with a virtual booklaunch featuring Dr Worboys and Slattery.
