Cooloola Coast PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Cooloola Coast free pdf Long golden beaches and rocky headlands, high forested dunes, dark waterways and broad lakes - these spectacular features make up the Cooloola Coast. Stretching sixty-five kilometres from Noosa to Fraser Island, it is a remarkable and diverse environment. Cooloola Coast describes the area's many-layered history of human occupation in absorbing detail, opening with the story of its Aboriginal occupants, whose kinship with nature was little understood by Europeans. A new and intriguing account tells of the legendary Eliza Fraser and the effects of her experiences on relations between Queensland's Aboriginal and white inhabitants. The final section features the speculators, timber-getters, farmers and fishermen who came seeking opportunities on a new frontier. Illustrated with maps, photographs and drawings, Cooloola Coast is the first comprehensive history of this beautiful and unique environment.
