Large format double-sided pamphlet folded to DL size, full colour throughout. Pamphlet opens up to reveal large map on one side and list of advertisements on the reverse side. When folded the front cover has a picture of rainforest and a creek.
Statement Of Significance:
This pamphlet presents a poignant snapshot of the tourist services and infrastructure which was present before the Black Saturday bushfires. Many of the landscapes and establishments listed in the pamphlet no longer exist or have been greatly impacted by the bushfires, and this demonstrates the strain the bushfires have had, and continue to have on the environment, economy and community of the Upper Yarra Valley and Marysville.
