The 4th edition of Bushwalking In Australia is available direct from the publisher, in many bushwalking shops and some bookshops. Note, in other countries, Bushwalking is called Tramping, Walking. Hiking or Backpacking Bushwalking In Australia, 320 pages, A5 in size – full colour throughout, 181 colour photographs, 56 colour topographic maps, 4th edition published in June 2003, previous editions were published by (Lonely Planet) LP in 1988, 1992 and 1997. Contains track notes for 25 walks plus brief planning and preparation notes. For each walk there are notes for Duration, Standard, When to Walk, Equipment, Permits, Maps and Access and of course detailed walking notes. With the change to self published this has allowed us to include many new design innovations including: notes divided into sections by distances and these distances are marked on the maps making it easy to switch between the notes and the maps Start and Finish of all walks clearly indicated. Gradient profiles (a graph showing ascents and descents) provided for each walk maps changed to be full colour topographic maps with grids and magnetic deviation displayed sidetrips and alternative track notes placed into shaded boxes thus making it clear which are the main notes and which are extras weather charts for each walk photographs displayed beside the text they illustrate – not many pages away in sections of colour inserts all photographs are taken on the walks and show what the guidebook user will see – no images of nearby or similar places used The guide contains only overnight or longer walks and with colour contour maps at either 1:100,000 or 1:50,000 scales. None of the strange map scales like 1:40,000, 1:80,000 etc or the really useless scales for walking like 1:250,000 which appear in some other books or our previous LP editions appear in the new edition of this guide. Rather than describing masses of walks in skimpy detail to make it look numerically attractive, the walks have full track notes of the standard walkers who use our Tasmania and other guides have come to expect.
