The Story behind the Story looks at how the book, Diprotodon: A megafauna journey, came about and the manuscript’s own journey through research to publication. 

The Diprotodon Herd Insights is about likely diprotodon behaviours, family herds and mating habits.

Bronwyn is happy to sign copies of her new book. If you would like to pre-order a copy please click on

Bronwyn Saunders is a passionate citizen scientist and children’s author who delights in sharing fascinating facts about Australia’s natural history with young readers. As a child in Kalangadoo in South Australia she loved to visit the nearby World Heritage listed Naracoorte Caves, where she first learned about the megafauna featured in the non-fiction picture book to be published by CSIRO Publishing in October 2023.
