Welcome to the Friends of the Great Victoria Desert Website

Breaking News

Our guide to the vegetation of the Great Victoria Desert, Shrubs and Trees of the Great Victoria Desert, has proved so popular that a second edition is now with the printers.  The new edition is a complete revision by botanist Manfred Jusaitis.  It includes several new plants and many improved photographs.  The Publications page will provide a preview and distribution details of the new edition soon.
