 Attention! Attention! Calling all young adventurers.

Starting in Brisbane and ending in Capalaba (the home of Wombat Books), on each page of the book Wombat tells readers what makes the location special. Wombat slops on some sunscreen to visit the beaches of Gold Coast. He spots a roo at Taronga Zoo and gets out his cricket bat to play at Adelaide Oval.

Each page is beautifully and individually illustrated by Australian school children. Below are the finalists for the 2018 Illustration Challenge, whose work will be featured in Around Australia in 30 Places.
