Overview

In his native Australia, Steve Parish – author, photographer and publisher – is something of an iconic figure, recognized across the continent for his pioneering underwater photography, commitment to conservation and championing of all things Australian.  A novel addition to the Bradt Eccentric range, unlike previous titles this takes images as its focus, accompanied by a very personal text, both of which draw extensively on Steve Parish's 30 years' experience photographing and exploring Australia.

Parish's lifelong enjoyment of his fun-loving country's more wacky elements is celebrated in style, including sculptures like the Big Lobster at Kingston, loo art, bizarre letterboxes, mad hatters and wheelie bin facelifts. Wildlife, too, is covered – what could be more odd than the weirdest of Australian creatures, the platypus?

Read an Excerpt

‘Australians have a fascination with anything larger than life – a big rock, a Great Barrier Reef – after all, it is a very big country!  Anyone on a road trip of the continent is likely to encounter at least one of the nation’s “big” objects, such as the Big Lobster at Kingston, South Australia.  Huge amounts of seafood are consumed with gusto all along Australia’s vast coastline, but at 17 metres high and weighing more than 4 tonnes, the Big Lobster would certainly fill a barbecue.’
