About this book

Queensland's tropics provide numerous environments for enjoyable walking: lush rainforests, cloud-shrouded mountains, extinct volcanoes, savanna woodlands, and magnificent beaches on the coast and Great Barrier Reef islands.

Walks, Tracks and Trails of Queensland's Tropics brings together more than 150 of the best walks, tracks or trails in Queensland's tropics, located within the coastal strip between Rockhampton and Cooktown. Walks vary from short boardwalk strolls in the lowland rainforests of Daintree National Park to 4-6 day hiking and camping trips on Hinchinbrook Island. Other routes follow old gold miners' and forestry tracks or coaching routes or feature historical sites, rivers, lagoons, geological and geographical formations or much earlier Aboriginal communication tracks where Dreamtime stories add a further dimension. Man-made environments of abandoned gold towns, heritage riverfronts, Art Deco streetscapes and Second World War installations also feature. Most routes are best completed during the 'Dry' season (May to October) and walked by moderately fit individuals. Most do not require specialist navigation or bushcraft skills.

Walks, Tracks and Trails of Queensland's Tropics highlights the best the region has to offer. Easy-to-interpret maps are included to help you navigate, and the book's size makes it convenient to carry in the backpack.
