Queensland: Geographical Perspectives

Our Society marked the International Geographical Union 2006 Brisbane Conference with the publication of Queensland: Geographical Perspectives. This collection of essays represents some of the recent work of geographers active in Queensland and reflects the diversity of research undertaken by geographers specialising in various fields, and by other professionals whose work is closely related to geography. The book has been edited by Society Councillors Iraphne Childs and Brian Hudson.

Copies may be bought from the Society office at a cost of $25.00.
