        My Place by Sally Morgan. Published in , My Place is an Australian classic and one of the earlier pieces of indigenous Australian literature: “Looking at the views and experiences of three generations of indigenous Australians, this autobiography unearths political and societal issues contained within Australia’s indigenous culture.   In the second edition of Freycinet's atlas, published in , the French government reinstated Flinders's place names for the coast of South Australia from Fowlers Bay to Encounter Bay including the north coast of Kangaroo Island, which he had been first to discover. The French names remained on the south-eastern coastline, and on the south.

        Behind every place name is a story. A new book catalogues the adventures, mistakes and history behind Australia's weirdest, from Bungle Bungle to Spanker Knob. An Australian ‘whodunnit’ mystery that takes place in a tranquil but wealthy beachside town. Moriarty perfectly captures kindergarten politics going awry when someone ends up dead at the annual trivia night. The book moves at a hand-clenching pace, and draws you behind the scenes to the homes of some frustrated and deceitful characters.

      Native Eucalypts of South Australia treats every native eucalypt species and subspecies that is currently known in the State ( in total). The book provides a wealth of information regarding the identification, distribution, ecology and uses of each eucalypt included.   Canberra is the capital of Australia. Several other names were suggested when the name was up for debate: Paradise, Captain Cook, Sydmeladperho, Eucalypta, and Olympus, among others. Canberra is thought to be derived from the native Walgalu word kambera, which is believed to mean “meeting place.” New South Wales.
