Top Walks in Australia 2nd edition is a completely updated guide featuring the best walking tracks across Australia.
Australia is a 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 human history. Experienced travel writer Melanie Ball has hiked every track in this second edition of Top Walks in Australia, with tracks to suit walkers of all experience levels.
Featured are some of Australia's most famous walks, including the Larapinta Trail and Overland Track, plus some lesser known gems. Most of the tracks can be completed in a few hours, but there are also some all-day or multi-day walks for those wanting more of a challenge. For each walk there is detailed trail information, a map and photographs.
