Australian Outback Books


Australia's cattle stations are fascinating. Vast landscapes and herds, interesting characters and a culture that is very different to coastal Australia. I'm the only photographer to have spent more than 3 decades specialising in photographing and writing about these stations, the largest 'ranches' in the world, and this experience gives me a good understanding of what makes each special.

These beautiful coffee-table style books include more than 800 unique photos I've taken since 1984 on nearly 60 of these stations. Images are accompanied by interesting captions and personal stories.

Order your personally signed copies of these memorable books here.

The cattle stations included are spread across the most remote and least-understood parts of Australia:


  • Cape York Peninsula
  • Gulf Country
  • Channel Country

Northern Territory:

  • Barkly Tableland
  • Marine Plains
  • Victoria River District
  • Red centre

Western Australia:

  • East and West Kimberley.

Thousands of these books have been sent around the world; they are unique and the best quality available. But you don't need to take my word for it - read comments from some book buyers on the Testimonials page. (You may see a comment from someone you know.)

I offer a money-back guarantee of satisfaction (refund information).

If you would like more information on these outback books, these three pages are full of details:

  • Book Contents

    Detailed information on the contents. What is different about each book? Which cattle stations are in each book?

  • Discounts & Postage

    Book bulk discount and postage summary.

  • Book & Card F.A.Q.

    Other outback book and card information - delivery times, payment and GST information, signed books, how to arrange a gift to be sent to someone else, etc.

A photograph of a bronco yard post was included in the first book, A Million Acre Masterpiece, that had fallen over by the time the second book, Life as an Australian Horseman, was published. The photograph above shows a copy of A Million Acre Masterpiece leaning up against the fallen post. It serves as a graphic reminder of the inexorable but often unrecorded changes to Australia's pastoral history.

I have done my best to make a record of this unique heritage for posterity, but always wish I could do more.  Every person who purchases a book helps fund more record-keeping.  Order your personally signed copies here and when ordering don't forget to tell me what Australia's outback means to you, in the 'comments' section, if you would like to.
