Nature Culture is a book about the ecology of the Bellinger Valley, about restoration ecology and about the aesthetics of nature. It is a series of essays on Bellingen Island, The Bellinger Valley, Tallowwood and Wet Eucalypt Forest, restoration ecology, the aesthetics of nature in an age of ecosystem management, the images of nature and the contemporary culture of nature.

Nature Culture The nature of Nature Culture refers in particular to the eucalypt forests and rainforests of the Bellinger Valley on the east coast of Australia. Their evolution, their long fashioning at the hands of the Gumbaynggirr people, and their transformation at the hands of agriculture, industrial society, and now environmental management, supplies the ecological detail of Nature Culture.

The culture of the title refers to the modern culture of nature. The history of this culture is also a kind of natural history - a wild process of social evolution, at the mercy of surreptitious and unconscious pressures. Its results often defy our intentions and best interests, distorting both the image of nature and nature itself.
