Clear and comprehensive track notes and maps for 100 carefully selected walks in the best walking areas of the state.
Tyrone Thomas, in association with Andrew Close, has gathered the best Tasmania has to offer in 100 Walks in Tasmania. Organised by region, the book covers walks to suit every level, grading them easy, medium or hard. All of the classics are here, as well as some lesser-known gems, including Wineglass Bay, Dove Lake, Walls of Jerusalem and the Tarn Shelf. Walks are described as circuits or retraces and have been planned so that public transport can be used to complete the circuit. Twelve selected walks, some of the best in the state, are overnight walks and will suit campers. Detailed route directions, track notes and time estimates give you all of the information you need to tackle the walks with confidence. This is the definitive guide to walking in Tasmania. Includes: 168 detailed maps; Comprehensive track notes; Complete index of walks arranged by region, major interest (i.e. beach, waterfall, wilderness etc) and season; Details of Tasmania's landscape and climate; Information on Tasmania's flora and fauna.
