Table of

This thoroughly researched book describes the rich history of the Manning Valley, a hidden gem tucked away on the eastern coast of Australia. In doing so it paints a vivid picture of Australia before and after settlement, telling stories of the characters who left barren homelands to start a new life on the other side of the world. Also comprehensively covers the ecological and geographical history of the WIngham Brush, the last remnant of ancient wilderness in the region.

Maximillian Solling is a passionate advocate for local histories whose previous work, a comprehensive and colourful history of Glebe was released to great acclaim. He has a masters degree in history from the University of Sydney, and teaches law part time.
