Appreciating Australia, the first of five books in the series Active Geography, is written specifically for the Geography Syllabus Years 7-10 as used by the NSW Board of Studies. Whilst the main audience is for students of Geography in New South Wales, the content of the book is also of potential use to students of Geography throughout Australia. The book provides a comprehensive coverage of Australia's environment and its communities as well as its place in the Asian region and global community. The book introduces the student to the continent of Australia and is an attempt, as spelled out in the new course, to raise student knowledge of the place and space of Australia.
