Books of the Barrabool Hills

We are attempting to compile a list of publications which contribute to building an historical picture of the Barrabool Hills. If anyone has books or photos to add to the list below, I would be very pleased to hear from them.

The publications listed were not necessarily written about the Hills, but some reference is made in all of them to the Barrabool Hills and its surrounds:
