In Conversation with Peter Lane

Thursday 7 April 2022, 7pm – Margaret River District Club


‘Our Planet and the Evolution of Western Australia’s Far South West’ Book Launch 

Join geologist Peter Lane and Professor Ross Dowling to discuss Peter’s new book charting the extraordinarily biologically rich South West Australian Ecoregion and how geological and biological activity and cosmic events have changed and shaped our planet and the far South West.      

The South West’s diverse landforms not only support many, often unique ecosystems but with a benign climate are the foundation of quality agriculture and an enviable place to live (and play!).   

This book could not be timelier as our planet and region continue to race the ongoing ravages of climate change and the growing climate crisis.  

Having lived in the region for 35 years and having participated in numerous environmental campaigns, Peter’s research and knowledge of the area has grown and expanded during this time. He shares his knowledge through his writing, making science not simply readable, but enjoyable, and hopes this book contributes to furthering the appreciation and conservation of this area. 

Door 6.30pm / Talk 7pm / Book sales and signings following talk 

Tickets $10 – includes a  complimentary glass of wine or soft drink on arrival. 


This event is an Art Margaret River fundraiser – help us keep the arts accessible for all in Margaret River. Hosted in partnership with the Margaret River District Club and Margaret River Book Shop.
