    Stretching from the ocean to the eastern hills, the Perth Region has coastal landscapes, river-valley landscapes, and forested hilly landscapes that reflect the diverse geology beneath.

    This field guide covers some of the classic geological localities near Perth -- for instance Cape Peron has preserved evidence for sea-level changes that have featured in scientific discussions for over 50 years. The guide describes the landscape and rocks and gives explanations on how they formed. Close-up photos and diagrams help the reader recognize and interpret the localities.

    This is a handy little guide for anybody with an interest in understanding their local landscape and local geology.
