On Track tells the story of John Blay's long-distance search for the Bundian Way, an important Aboriginal pathway between Mt Kosciuszko and Twofold Bay near Eden on the New South Wales far south coast. The 360-kilometre route traverses some of the nation's most remarkable landscapes, from the highest place on the continent to the ocean. This epic bushwalking story uncovers the history, country and rediscovery of this significant track. Now heritage-listed, and thanks to the work of Blay and local Indigenous communities, the Bundian Way is set to be one of the great Australian walks.

The Track


A wonderful account of the historical connection to land of the Aboriginal people of the South Coast of NSW and the subsequent activities of white settlers



A captivating read. John Blay, a true master of observation!


This is one of the most inspiring reads I have ever come across. John Blay is a true poet and master observer of nature and our countries true history. Well documented support evidence. I'll be buying more of his books and walking the great way. Some day.

Excellent read


Very informative about Aboriginal history and culture. A must read for anyone wanting to learn about the Monaro and South Coast of NSW



great read, enjoyable knowledge gathering


This book really helped me understand the benefits of return to traditional Aboriginal land management practices and how we need to start now doing the research to re-learn Aboriginal ecology and the lost cultural knowledge.
