This is the sweetest little coffee table book. Covering off step-by-step instructions and a map for 112 different walks around Australia, I think it's perfect if you're after a little bit of weekend (or weekday) activity inspiration.
It hones in on each of the capital cities and based on what I know about Sydney the walks included are the main, more popular walks of the city. It offers up all the most useful info you need to decide on a walk such as distance (they are mostly on the long side), difficulty and my favourite tip, the "ideal season" to tackle the walk, which I think is super useful in narrowing down the options.
I think this would make a great gift or coffee table book for anyone after a bit of adventure inspiration and a fun thing to do would be to travel around Australia in an attempt to check them all off the list.
Walks in Nature: Australia is a celebration of being outdoors. From coastal cliffs and crescents of sand, to iconic bush landscapes and wild offshore islands, this book offers more than 100 walking trails around the country, all within an easy distance of your capital city.
This second edition has been completely updated and contains new walks for every state. In every chapter you'll find a variety of walks to suit every season and fitness level, with detailed track notes and easy-to-use maps. Each trail is 6-20km in distance and includes a delicious suggested foodie stop, where you can refuel and reflect on a day walking in nature.
The book features walks in and around Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Hobart.
