New South Wales offers some of the best bushwalks in Australia, with fascinating natural and man-made treasures hidden along its tracks and trails. There are World Heritage-listed rainforests, convict relics, colonies of wombats, the largest area of movable sand on the east coast and a mountain that has been burning for 6000 years.
There are walks to snow-covered mountains, through volcanic landscapes and to remote beaches that few people visit. How does this guidebook differ from the rest? Experienced travel writer Ken Eastwood reminds us that bushwalking is an activity for almost anyone - that we can all enjoy the outdoors. Most of the tracks covered can be completed in a few hours, but there are some tougher and multi-day walks for wanting a greater challenge.
For each walk, there is detailed trail information, a map, photographs and beautiful illustrations by Guy Troughton and David Mackay of fauna and flora that you're likely to see along the way.

The book is really inviting. Each bush walk is so well described. The guide is small, light and easily fits in a backpack.
A "must" for all Aussies and travellers to our country.
