A Traveller`s Flora describes and illustrates the common and conspicuous plants you see while driving around south eastern Australia. It includes crop plants, trees, common roadside plants and weeds. Every plant has a name and a history and this book helps you to get to know them and their relatives with the help of beautiful colour photographs and a quick plant finder. The book also includes a brief introduction to botany: how plants are named and classified, how they grow.

The book arose through holiday trips throughout south eastern Australia from Queensland to Tasmania with Bruces family and friends and their questions about plants.

The idea for the book was supported with a small grant from the Australian Academy of Science to foster a wider interest in the plant sciences.
