This clever novelty book will fit in the palm of your hand but it contains 14 of the most famous sites you may encounter on a visit to Australia. The accordion book stretches out with pop-up scenes on both sides. You’ll find a map of the country that shows where each individual pop- up is located.

The scenes include the Wave Rock, Kakadu National Park and the Great Barrier Reef. Urban locations range from the Sydney Harbor Bridge, and St. Peter’s Cathedral in Adelaide to the Melbourne Cricket Grounds and the iconic Sydney Opera House. Each pop-up also includes information about the site.

Teachers will want to use this in the classroom while studying Australia and if you are planning a visit to the country, this would be a good introduction.
