With an introduction by Cheryl Taylor. Tales of the Austral Tropics (1894) is a collection of short stories published in the Sydney Bulletin in the 1890s.
Set in tropical northern Australia, Favenc brings to life the half-unknown and mysterious regions of this part of Australia. The tales exude bush themes and bring together elements of the sensational and supernatural that are characteristic of Favenc's work. This is one of several works that have earned him a place in Australian literary history. (back cover)
