scherzo♫ (pjreads) | 12 comments The butterfly Man by Heather Rose The butterfly Man set in Tasmania, is good.

*********
Another excellent book set in Australia that I read 15-20 years ago but haven't been able find again or remember the title or author:

The book begins with a young Australian aborigine girl and her family as she learns about the Dreamtime. There are beautifully described scenes of the mother teaching the girl about the land and their life. The girl is taken from her family and put in a school in Sydney. She tries to adapt but the book ends with main character as an adult leaving city to walkabout.

Would really like to read this one again if anyone recognizes it.

David Black | 4 comments The Narrow Road to the Deep North The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan by Richard Flanigan

Set partially in Australia, partially in WWII era Burma. The main character is Australian, as is the author and many of the other characters. A powerful book!

Mome_Rath | 1210 comments Great list, and one I'll definitely keep coming back to for reference! It's a small matter, but I did notice you were missing The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough, which would qualify both for New South Wales (home of fictional Drogheda) and Queensland (where Maggie follows her husband and where she spends time on the island).
