New South Wales offers some of the best bushwalks in Australia, with fascinating natural and man-made treasures hidden along its tracks and trails. Experienced travel writer Ken Eastwood has completed every track in this book for walkers of all levels of experience. There are walks for every part of the state, including the famous Six Foot Track in the Blue Mountains, and even the hike to the top of Mount Gower on Lord Howe Island. 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, photographs and beautiful illustrations of fauna and flora that you're likely to see along the way.
