About Bundeena

Bundeena is a small village on the southern outskirts of Sydney. It is surrounded by the Royal National Park and bounded by the Port Hacking estuary and its sandy beaches.

The wide range of habitats and ecosystems found there make Bundeena an ideal place for children to observe and study native flora and fauna. These habitats include littoral rainforest remnants, estuarine mudflats, mangroves and salt-marsh, angophera and casuarina woodlands, coastal heathland and swampland.

All the plants and animals illustrated in the book can be found in the bush around Bundeena. Many of them are commonly found in the authors back yard including echidnas, diamond pythons and goannas!
