Australia is mecca for bushwalkers - there are walks crossing every sort of landscape, from rocky deserts to the tropical coast, craggy mountains to verdant rainforest, as well as some shaped by colourful human history. Experienced travel writer Melanie Ball has hiked every track in this book for walkers of all levels of experience. Included are some of Australia's most famous walks, including the Larapinta Trail and Overland Track, plus some undiscovered gems. Most of the tracks can be completed in a few hours, but there are some more difficult multi-day walks for those wanting more of a challenge. For each walk there is detailed trail information, a map, and photographs.
Melanie Ball’s career as a travel writer fell off the back of an overland expedition truck between London and Johannesburg. Over the four decades since then, her articles and images have been widely published across Australia, including RACV’s Royal Auto magazine. Her love of bushwalking well predates that big adventure, however, and she is still happiest with only hiking-boot tread between her and terra firma. Melanie has walked widely throughout Australia and in overseas regions from Tierra del Fuego to Ethiopia’s Simien Mountains. This is the third book in her series, following Top Walks in Victoria and Top Walks in Australia.
Written for all grades of walkers, with special tips for Americans and others visiting Australia with only limited time, but great interest.
Introduces the best walks for visitors and locals alike, ranging from strolls along well-laid footpaths to more difficult hikes up rugged ridges and along remote river beds. The book covers Alice Springs, the MacDonnell Ranges and the Red Centre Way, plus the iconic walks to be found around Uluru and Kata Tjuta, Watarrka and Rainbow Valley.
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 has completed every track and reminds us that bushwalking is an activity for almost anyone. Most of the tracks covered can be completed in a few hours, but there are some tougher multi-day walks for those wanting a greater challenge. For each walk, there is detailed trail information, a map and photographs of what you’ll see along the way.
Victoria offers a jaw-dropping diversity of bushwalks through areas rich in natural wonders and colourful human history. Experienced travel writer Melanie Ball has hiked every track in this book for walkers of all levels of experience. There are walks for each part of the state, including the renowned Wilsons Promontory Lighthouse loop and salt lake circuits in the Mallee region. Most of the tracks can be completed in a few hours, but there are some more difficult multi-day walks for those wanting more of a challenge. For each walk there is detailed trail information, a map and photographs that you're likely to see along the way. In this second edition of Top Walks in Victoria, all of the track information has been updated and four new walks have been added.
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!
