‘Our Planet and the Evolution of Western Australia’s Far South West’ Book Launch

Thursday, 7th April 2022 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm


Join geologist Peter Lane and Professor Ross Dowling, Chair of Geo Parks Australia to discuss Peter’s new book charting the extraordinarily biologically rich South West Australian Ecoregion and how geological and biological activity and cosmic events have changed and shaped our planet and the far South West.

The South West’s diverse landforms not only support many, often unique ecosystems but with a benign climate are the foundation of quality agriculture and an enviable place to live (and play!).

This book could not be timelier as our planet and region continue to race the ongoing ravages of climate change and the growing climate crisis. Having lived in the region for 35 years and having participated in numerous environmental campaigns, Peter’s research and knowledge of the area has grown and expanded during this time. He shares his knowledge through his writing, making science not simply readable, but enjoyable, and hopes this book contributes to furthering the appreciation and conservation of this area.

Door 6.30pm / Talk 7pm / Book sales and signings following talk. Tickets $10 – includes a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink on arrival.

This event is an Art Margaret River fundraiser hosted in partnership with the Margaret River District Club and Margaret River Book Shop
