Hobarts Best Bush, Coast & City Walks, part of Woodslanes hugely successful walking guides series, introduces the best walks for visitors and residents alike, ranging from historic urban strolls to the more rugged tracks deep in the local bush. Detailed descriptions and maps help the reader explore the regions parks, bushland, hills, coastal and river areas and its most interesting urban areas. As with previous titles in the series, the book is richly illustrated with over 150 full-colour photographs and dozens of detailed maps. A summary table of walks indicating distances, facilities and highlights is included to help the reader find exactly the right walk for the occasion. Walking chapters: In and around Hobart, Eastern Shore, North and north-west of Hobart, South of Hobart, Mt Wellington, Bruny Island, plus a bonus walk on the Tasman Peninsula.

Ingrid Roberts is a keen bushwalker and photographer and has explored many wonderful Tasmanian walking tracks during the 50 years she has lived in the state.
