Summary

Blue Gum Forest is the Cradle of Conservation in NSW. It was saved from the axe by bushwalkers in 1931-32. This is the story of the forest and the wilderness area in which it lies: the railways, dams and mines that never eventuated, and the Aborigines, explorers, cattlemen, bushwalkers, canyoners and conservationists who've been part of it.
