The book: Bushland Campus was published in 1994. It described aspects of the history, landscape, flora and fauna, etc of the 140ha campus of the University of Newcastle. The publication of the book was made possible by the support of the Friends of the University. Illustrative material (photographs, drawings and paintings) was supplied by staff and students.

Under consideration at the moment, is a project to produce a second edition of this book to bring it up to date with the many changes that have occured since its publication.
This page will be updated as the plans progress, and is likely to include extracts from the original book, along with the current status of the project.
Much of the heavy lifting on the original project was done by Kevin McDonald, and we are fortunate that although he is now retired from the University, he is still the main driver for this new project. Kevin can be reached via his email address
