For the first time in a single volume, this book brings together more than 140 of the best walks, tracks or trails in New South Wales, which can be walked by the moderately fit individual. They are located in national parks, coastal parks, state forests, conservation reserves, historic parks and local government and public easements. Other routes follow state highways, minor roads, coastal cliffs, old gold routes, or pass bushranger haunts and back roads linking towns and historical features.

Most routes do not require specialist navigation or bushcraft skills, and vary in length from a 45-minute stroll to a 4-day, 65-kilometre camping trip.

Walks, Tracks and Trails of New South Wales highlights the best the state has to offer, from an outback ghost town and ancient lake beds, to Australia’s highest mountain, coastal environments and World Heritage rainforests. Easy-to-interpret maps are included to help you navigate, and the book’s size makes it convenient to bring with you on your adventures.


  • Each location is presented on facing pages where possible, so that text and maps can be read without turning pages.
  • Photography has been taken in conditions and standards that walkers will experience along the routes.
  • Some routes are for walking only, while others include activities such as biking.
  • Highlights of a particular walk or ride are identified.
  • Easy to follow directions on location and duration of walk.
  • Most of the routes chosen do not require specialist navigation or bushcraft skills.
  • Includes recommendations on safety.
  • Maps are simple and easy to interpret.
