About this book

For the first time in a single volume, Walks, Tracks and Trails of Victoria brings together more than 150 of the best walks, tracks or trails in Victoria, which can be walked, cycled or driven by the moderately fit individual. They are located in national and state parks, state forests, conservation reserves, historic parks and local government and public easements. Other routes follow state highways, old railways and gold routes, or pass bushranger haunts and back roads linking towns, historical and geological or geographical features.

Most of the routes chosen do not require specialist navigation or bushcraft skills, and vary from a short 45 minutes on a boardwalk to four-day long-distance walking and camping.

Walks, Tracks and Trails of Victoria covers the best the state has to offer, from deserts to coastal and mountain environments. It highlights the features of each location and encourages you to enjoy the experience at an informed level. 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.

"There is much of interest to be read about these trips, be it natural history, geology, built environment or history. This book would be a good addition to your Victorian travels."
- Elizabeth Matheson, Park Watch, June 2010
