a perfect gift for those about to go caravanning around Australia
—Linda Ross, Talking Lifestyle
Across Australia, bandstands, rotundas and pavilions showcase the history and character of big cities and tiny townships. They are a testament to boom times, when gold called people from afar to share the spoils, and also to times of woe, built as monuments to the fallen in wars on distant lands.
For Alison Rose, they are windows to another time, and reveal a surprisingly rich and varied past. Her book, Pavilions in Parks, guides readers, travellers and nomads across the country, from Albany to Toogoolawah, where these little gems adorn the land.
