Description of this Book

Tasmania is utopia for bushwalkers - there are walks traversing many diverse landscapes, from exposed ice-carved moors and mountains to primordial rainforests, rugged river gorges and precipitous sea cliffs, as well as some that follow in the footsteps of convict labourers. Experienced travel writer Melanie Ball has hiked every track in this book for walkers of all levels of experience. Included are some of Tasmania's most famous walks, such as the Overland Track and Frenchman's Cap, plus some hidden gems. Most of the tracks can be completed in a few hours, but there are some multi-day walks for those wanting more of a challenge. For each walk there is detailed trail information, a map and photographs.

Author's Bio

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.
