Going Bush. Going Bush is an inspirational and heart-warming journey about friendship and culture. As a group of children from different cultural backgrounds explore together, they make discoveries about the land they share, and what they have in common. This book is all about the experience of children finding harmony in the land and in their community. Written by Nadia Wheatley and Ken Searle. 


In 2005 author Nadia Wheatley and artist Ken Searle developed a Harmony Project with sixteen students from eight infant and primary schools in Sydney - some Muslim, some Catholic, some government schools. As well as experiencing the harmony of the natural environment, the children were encouraged to learn about harmony between the traditional owners and the land, and to find harmony in friendship and collaboration.

Nadia Wheatley writes for both adults and young people. Her award-winning books cover the genres of fiction, history, biography and picture books, and reflect her commitment to social justice. Nadia's first book, Five Times Dizzy , was often described as the first multicultural children's book in this country.

Ken Searle grew up around the Cooks River, in the south-west suburbs of Sydney, where he still lives. He is best known for his large paintings in oil on canvas, depicting the suburban and industrial areas of a number of Australian cities. As well, he has painted the landscapes of the Western Desert and of the southern coastline.

In 2005 Nadia Wheatley and Ken Searle developed an innovative Harmony project with children from Muslim, Catholic and state schools in Sydney's south-west. Examples of the students' writing and art are included in the picture book Going Bush , which is illustrated and designed by Ken and has a narrative text by Nadia. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
