"This book Schooling for Sustainable Development: A Focus on Australia, New Zealand and the Oceanic Region, is the product of passionate interests of teachers, scholars and researchers located in diverse parts of the Australasian region. Working with their colleagues within local contexts they have conducted research and gathered together information for practitioners and students interested in learning more about sustainable lifestyle practices. Some of the work has taken place in remote locations and some has been in within the confines of major cities. The Australasian Region brings together people and cultures that link traditional economies to global networks and lifestyles. Diverse terrain, politics and responses typify the region. Close to Asia there are lingering ties with old European ways and cultural beliefs. The major economies of Australia and New Zealand provide the lead with development practices for lesser economies such as Papua New Guinea, Fiji and the many island nations scattered throughout the South Pacific. This complexity is not easily represented. Key issues relate to land ownership, mobilities within the region and the gradual dissemination of knowledge, skills and wealth. The book will provide both reference material and interesting reading for teachers, researchers and practitioners in interested in community based perspectives on sustainability. We have learnt from each other and hope that others will benefit from our efforts."

Australia is the only country in the world where every major stage in the earth's evolution can be witnessed through 'living fossils'. You step through time by experiencing Australia's stunning arid lands, tropical rainforests, palm grottoes, heathlands, island havens, and marine sanctuaries. But Australia doesn't stop there: the wildlife is brimming with unusual ways to survive an unrelenting environment where rain comes about once per decade. Check out the Thorny Devil, a reptile that slurps dew from its feet into the corners of its mouth through a surface network of microscopic aqueducts. Or the beautiful flowering Banksia that provide their nectar with essential amino-acids so their pollinating Honeyeaters don't need to waste time hunting high-protein food elsewhere. This book shows eco-travellers what to look for and why, plus how to get the best experience at each destination. From the Great Barrier Reef to the Queensland Wet Tropics, Ayers Rock to Sydney and the Blue Mountains, Hannah Robinson helps you find human-sized birds, understand the local geology, and much more. Travel destinations include many World Heritage sites. Resources included in the book will help you make the most of any visit. There are lists of wildlife guides, safaris, nocturnal expeditions, and dive companies; descriptions of walks and hikes from a half-hour to nine days in length, plus rafting trips and more; wilderness lodges, cabins, and starlit accommodation information.
