Between 1880 and 1930, a series of schemes brought thousands of settlers to Victoria's Mallee region. At the same time, a number of railway lines were constructed through the area, with towns constructed approximately every 10 miles.
Now, almost a century after the settlement schemes ended and the depopulation of the Mallee began, a team of Australia's best rural documentary photographers, along with writer Adam McNicol, who grew up in the Mallee town of Manangatang, retrace the railway lines to see what remains.
The result is a stunning photo book, containing over 150 full colour images. 'The Mallee: A journey through north-west Victoria' is a portrait and celebration of the small communities that dot north- west Victoria and the people who call them home.
