Prehistoric Giants: The Megafauna of Australia


Step back in time to when giant goannas and marsupial lions stalked the Australian bush. Imagine herds of two-tonne Diprotodon roaming the plains, and flocks of flightless ducks bigger than emus striding across the shallow inland sea.

Prehistoric Giants, the second book in the Museums Victoria Nature series, is a guide to the Australian megafauna of the Pleistocene – when humans shared the land with giants.

Richly illustrated, Prehistoric Giants is brought to life by the art of Peter Trusler, among others, and will reveal an Australia you've never seen before.

Shortlisted for the Children's Book Council of Australia's Eve Pownall Award for Nonfiction.
