Sydney has some outstanding walks right in the heart of the city. Most Sydneysiders know of the well-trodden Bondi to Coogee or Spit to Manly walks but Sydney's Best Harbour and Coastal Walks includes more than thirty five waterside walks from Palm Beach to the Royal National Park. Everyone in the community is aware of the need for daily activity to keep healthy and walking is increasingly popular with people who would not call themselves bushwalkers. In Sydney's Best Harbour and Coastal Walks, Katrina O'Brien, travel guide author and local resident, combines her walking experience and passion for Sydney's undeveloped places to produce a user- friendly guide to the city's best quiet and wild walks as well as the classic showy walks. The text is complemented by more than 150 full-colour photographs and detailed full-colour maps.

This Scotsman has two major passions in life: wildlife and travel. After gaining a diploma in wildlife illustration and photography in Wales in1986, Darroch took up the position of assistant manager at a wildlife rehabilitation centre in Scotland. This unusual work took him to many far away places, including Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War Eco-disaster in 1991 and eventually to New Zealand, where he emigrated in 1992. There he acted as an oiled wildlife consultant to the government and in 1996 published his first book 'Creatures', an account of his wildlife encounters. Now Darroch has expanded his work to include both travel and nature.
