Prom Country spans the Liptrap Peninsula, through the Corner Inlet amphitheatre to the Welshpool waterways, all with a backdrop of the rolling hills which define South Gippsland.

This collection of essays, extracts of memoirs and interviews celebrates the landscape and people of the Prom Country and will appeal to everyone keen to gain a greater understanding of this beautiful part of Victoria.
