About the Author
Over the years Thomas Palfy along with his wife and travelling companion, Susan has visited numerous attractions of the fifth continent. Out of these rich experiences the books Australian Adventures and Images of Australia were created. These two works describe and illustrate visits to the main cities as well as many national parks with their weird and wonderful landscapes, unusual plants, fascinating animals and encounters with people. The West of the West is a travelogue of a trip to the West Coast and the Kimberley region of Western Australia with many colour illustrations. The Hub of Australia and Beyond is a similar account of tours in South Australia and the Northern Territory. Australia Illustrated: The Eastern States completes the trilogy of descriptions and illustrations of tours to the states and territories of the fifth continent. Definitely Digital! is a concise guide to digital photography. Across Australia from East to West is Palfy’s most comprehensive work presenting many of Australia’s incomparable tourist attractions in words and pictures. The author was diagnosed with lung cancer early in 2010. After an operation, several stays in hospital and months of chemotherapy treatment Palfy was back in the Grampians late in October taking photos of wildflowers, mountain ranges and other tourist attractions of the National Park. This was soon after completing his treatment sessions, but not before relating his experiences in the hospital in the book The funny side of lung cancer. The work with its provocative title aims at inspiring people to take an optimistic attitude no matter what situation they have to face in life.
