Review: Australia: A Three-Dimensional Expanding Country Guide

Following on from Sarah McMenemy's gorgeous fold-out books, this beautiful rendition by Charlotte Trounce really typifies the glory of our country, its beauty, its icons and its nuances.

Slid into a little box-like folder, the book can be slipped from its case and unfurled like a concertina, with cut-outs and pop-ups of iconic Australian scenes, including Sydney's opera house and bridge, Parliament House, The Twelve Apostles, Port Arthur, Kakadu and the Great Barrier Reef.

Concise text rounds out a series of gorgeous watercolour images that beautifully capture our country's natural and man-made beauty.

A wonderful gift in celebration of Australia's national day.
