    Canberra's Best Bush, Park & City Walks 2/e


    Canberra and its surrounds boast a huge range of beautiful environments, making the region perfect for exploring on foot. This second edition of Canberras Best Bush, Park & City Walks introduces 49 of the best walks for visitors and residents alike, ranging from fascinating city walks and leisurely lake-side strolls to more rugged tracks deep in the bush . Detailed descriptions and maps help the reader explore the capitals parks, bushland, lakes, rivers and 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: Lake and surrounds, Foothills and higher points, Southern Canberra, the Murrumbidgee Corridor, Tidbinbilla and Namadgi, Northern Canberra, and Molonglo and Googong.

    Marion Stuart has been a teacher in Canberra for many years. Born in Canberra with family in the area, she grew up with an understanding of early Canberra and the history of the region. However, researching and writing this book has given her another perspective altogether. Many of the walks for this book were first completed as a young girl - some have changed dramatically and others seem virtually unchanged, except for signage and a better defined path.
