Crawley, W.A. : University of Western Australia Press | 2006.
A history of the university grounds, their design, management and landscape evolution. It is also a reminder of the very rich educational resource the grounds can offer-in botany, ecology, landscape design and social history. The book includes sections on areas of special interest such as the Sunken Garden, Somerville Auditorium and Japanese Garden. The UWA campus is one of the most beautiful campuses in Australia.
This book traces the story of the University's setting from its early role as an Aboriginal meeting place and hunting ground to the diverse campus of today. Individual features and gardens reflect all aspects of university life, from research to meditation. [Book jacket, ed]
