Visit some of the most remote and beautiful places of south and west Australia in Green Nomads Wild Places, Bob Brown and partner Paul Thomas’s three-month adventure across Australia. 

This is a photographic and written record of a journey that took them first by yacht and then by road along the coasts and by-ways of southern Australia. They floated in hidden harbours and on ancient rivers, climbed over age-old rock formations, and camped at isolated Bush Heritage Australia properties, revelling in the beauty of the natural universe. Bob Brown and Paul Thomas remind us how extraordinary and diverse is our natural world. 

Green Nomads Wild Places is a superb companion to Green Nomads, the book of their first 19 000 kilometre journey inland through eastern Australia, which followed Bob’s retirement after 16 years in the Senate.

Bob Brown

'A man of conviction, a thoroughly honest man, a man of principle.’ – Alan Ramsey
Bob Brown resigned as leader of the Greens in 2012 and from the Australian Senate in June 2012.  Brown led the Australian Greens from the party's foundation in 1992 until April 2012. In 1978 Bob was appointed director of the Tasmania Wilderness Society and led the campaign to prevent the construction of the Franklin dam. He spent 19 days in prison and on the day of his release, in 1983, he became a member of Tasmania’s parliament. Bob was elected to the Australian Senate in 1996. From 2002 to 2004, when minor parties held the balance of power in the Senate, Brown became a well-recognised politician. He was re-elected in both 2001 and in 2007. Bob Brown was also the first openly gay member of the Parliament of Australia, and the first openly gay leader of an Australian political party. Bob lives with his partner Paul in Tasmania and travels widely. Bob has published a number of books including his memoir and photographic books and poetry books. He has also won many awards, including from the United Nations.
