How fortunate the people of Australia are to belong to a continent so rich in natural beauty. Today, Australia is recognised as one of only a few places in the world which can boast of large tracts of unspoilt wilderness.This is wilderness in the strictest sense, where it is necessary to go on foot, often for many kilometres, to visit these spectacular areas. These are Australia's best wild places, those with a reputation for wild scenery, dramatic climates and isolation. And only those prepared to walk can experience these rich and often breathtaking environments.Classic Wild Walks of Australia is more than simply a pictorial celebration of wild Australia. It is also a very practical volume. As well as providing a showcase for a fine photographic collection, the book contains highly detailed descriptions of what is considered to be the pick of Australia's wildest bushwalks. There are extensive route descriptions (which include tactical advice, grades and estimates of trip times), finely detailed maps of each region, and notes on natural history and weather conditions. This is indispensable information for those intent on responding to a challenge to see Australia on foot for themselves, or simply interested in chalking up successes on Australia's top twenty five (25) bushwalks!
