Take A Walk in the Blue Mountains E-Book
Artists, poets, writers, naturalists and bushwalkers have all found inspiration amid the distinctive blue haze and hidden beauty of the majestic Blue Mountains.
With this book, you’ll discover amazing landforms of towering sandstone cliffs; plummeting waterfalls; vegetation communities from open eucalypt forests to fragile hanging gardens suspended on rugged escarpments; art from the world’s oldest living civilisation, and history from Australia’s colonial days. All this on the doorstep of our largest urban development.
There are walks to suit everyone in this totally revised and updated edition. Adventures for families with children, active travellers and hard-core bushwalkers. Take a short stroll to an expansive lookout; enjoy pleasant half-day or full-day walks, or test yourself with more challenging scrambles as you negotiate historic passes or scale mountain peaks. Overnight walks through the spectacular Grose Valley and along Australia’s second most popular multi-day walk, the Six Foot Track, have been described.
Detailed notes on evolution, environment, access and facilities will help you to plan and enjoy your trip. Colour maps and photos complement the walk descriptions. Particular attention has been paid to walks that start and finish at railway stations.
