Western Australia has more national parks than any other state and most are easily accessible and have good camping facilities. They represent an extraordinary diversity of flora, fauna, climate and landforms and in some of them, such as the Stirling Range, the Pinnacles and Karijini, the geological features are the main attraction.

The parks include some of the oldest to some of the youngest rocks to be found on this very old continent, from those that have been greatly altered by the collision of continents to those that have remained undisturbed for billions of years.

In all parks the geology has controlled landforms and has had a major influence over the flora. An understanding of this geology will lead to a greater appreciation of just how special these places are.

Now, with the ample assistance of photographs, satellite images and diagrams The Geology of Western Australia's National Parks describes this geology in easy-to-understand language.

The book also explains the geological evolution of our state and demonstrates how geological events have and continue to have a profound effect on almost everything in nature such as why humans walk on two legs; why Australia has so many wildflowers; why the sky is blue, and more.

The Geology of Western Australia's National Parks - the perfect glove-box companion during your next trip to a Western Australian national park.
