The Mallee - A journey through north-west Victoria
The Mallee Book, I’m so honoured to call this landscape my home and back yard.
A wonderful gift and souvenir of your travels through our region.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Between 1880 and 1930, a series of schemes brought thousands of settlers to Victoria’s Mallee region. At the same time, a number of railway lines were constructed through the area, with towns established approximately every 10 miles.
Now, almost a century after the settlement schemes ended and the depopulation of the Mallee began, writer Adam McNicol and five of Australia’s best rural documentary photographers – Andrew Chapman, Jaime Murcia, Noel Butcher, Melanie Faith Dove and Erin Jonasson – retrace the railway lines to see what remains.
