    I own the last book which I purchased while in Australia. I loved the illustrations so much, i purchased multiple copies and gave them away. Great list! Diary of wombat looks like a fun read!

    We were in Cairns which is where the rainforests are located (if my memory is correct).

    My inlaws live in Australia, so we get books from there every year (we have most of the collection you just posted!). I can also recommend the Australia 12 Days of Xmas among others. I'll have to post our collection one of these days :) Enjoy the books! Australia is beautiful!

    When I studied Australia with my son, I really didn't have many books to go with the study. I'll write these down and look them up when my daughter studies it. Thanks for sharing!

    I am a South African mama married to an Australian husband. We live in SA, but I feel it very important that my children also learn about their Australian heritage, so I love picture books about that country. Thank you very much for this list! Two more we really like is Lizzy Nonsense by Jan Ormerod and Koala Lou by Mem Fox.

    Great choices! We read some of the books on the list, but I decided not to get Are We There Yet? after reading some reviews. I thought it will probably go "whoosh" over Anna's head :)

    @Joyful Mama – I forgot to put Lizzy Nonsense on the list, but we did read that one too. @ Raising a Happy Child – Are we there yet was definitely over Bear's head, but I really enjoyed it, so I'm glad I got it from the library.

    We haven't read any of these. Thanks for the list. I've become more interested in Australia after visiting so many blogs written by Australians.
