English novelist Anthony Trollope described the Western District squatters in the 1870s as 'plentiful, proud, prejudiced, given to hospitality, impatient of contradiction a thoughtful on the future, and above all, conscious-perhaps a little too conscious-of their own importance a forty thousand sheep cannot be shorn without a piano; twenty thousand is the lowest number that renders napkins at dinner imperative'. But these squatters were also speculators and investors, whose entrepreneuship built great wealth and elaborate mansions. Around their Georgian and Victorian homes they created an antipodean England, employing the best-known landscape architects of the day. The Western District today retains most of the renowned homesteads and gardens that date from these times. This fascinating and beautiful book-sequel to the bestselling Great Properties of Country Victoria-takes us into the private world of thirteen more notable properties. Through their histories we follow their fortunes-extraordinary tales of risk and reward-and through the photographs see the splendour of great homes that have been lovingly maintained and carefully restored. It is a tribute to the past and present owners who have so painstakingly preserved their properties' heritage.

How, if possible, to re-populate declining rural and regional areas? Examining this crucial and complex issue in relation to Australia, this book explores how a particular organization, 'Country Week', has emerged and developed as one means of stimulating the repopulation of declining or stagnating areas. While this is a problem shared by many other developed countries in Europe and North America, Australia's 'Country Week' programme puts forward an innovative range of place-marketing strategies that challenge rural decline and urban migration and can offer new approaches which could be adopted more widely.
