A fast moving film which demonstrates, through its photography, the unsurpassed beauty of this area and the life it supports. It is a study of the attitudes to land use from Aboriginal occupancy through the struggle of white settlers and the golden age of timber to the present day when conservation has become a powerful voice worldwide.
