Looking for the Perfect Christmas Present for Naturelovers?
A new, exciting book is available for sale at the Friends Centre …. ‘Walking On Yugambeh Country’ written by Laura Ryan, one of our Friends!
Laura wrote: ‘The purpose of the book, through the photos, is to give people an insight into the beauty surrounding the Gold Coast and then to inspire them to go for a walk and enjoy it.
As well, I particularly wanted to pay my respects to the first peoples of the area. The Yugambeh language people walked, looked after, used and interacted with the magnificent flora. They worked with and understood the seasons of nature.
The first walk I feature is the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens and I encourage the reader to take a tour of ‘Gaureima gulli jagun ‘ – The Story of our Country.
The book, through photos, after Coombabah and Jellurgal (Burleigh Headland) covers magnificent Springbrook, Tamborine Mountain and the Woonoongoora (Lamington National Park).’
This book, along with others in the Friends Centre open from 10am – 2pm, would make a very special Christmas gift for someone who loves the natural environment!
The book is $25.00 for Friends members and $30.00 for non members.
