A REFERENCE book penned by a Woolgoolga conservationist has been named as one of the CSIRO’s best sellers.
Roger Fryer’s book Wildlife and Wilderness in the Waterfall Country has been highlighted in the organisation’s Christmas catalogue as a “wonderful detailed guide of the NSW Mid North Coast and the great escarpment”.
The book highlights Mr Fryer’s passion for the local landscape and its amazing biodiversity.
“There is nowhere in the world that you can travel from snow covered peaks at Point Lookout at 1563m to the tropical waters off Coffs Harbour in just 60km,” Mr Fryer said. “You go from snow and drop down to coral and that sort of transverse you don’t get anywhere else in Australia.”
The book is illustrated with stunning photography and is a practical guide to experiencing the best of the Waterfall Country. It details wilderness walks and activities and offering first-hand accounts from those living and working in the region.
It also has links to useful websites and contains information on how to safely explore the region, including what to wear, what to take with you, what to do if you get lost and how to deal with minor injuries and snakebite.
The book is available from Dymocks, Pages and the CSIRO website
