Great North Walk 3/e

Sydney to Newcastle: Australia's most accessible long-distance track
Table of

The 250-kilometre Great North Walk winds it way from Central Sydney to Newcastle, threading through some of the most beautiful areas in between those two cities. This guide, fully updated for its third edition, has been written for anyone looking to tackle all or part of the route as a multi-day holiday, or those who want to dip in and experience particular sections as day walks. It has also been written to be followed easily in the reverse direction. Like all the Woodslane Press walking guides, the book includes full-colour photography and accurate maps, easy-to-follow instructions and great local information.

Having developed a love of wild places through the Scouts, Matt McClelland established Wildwalks to share this passion with others. He (with his team) is the author of three other Woodslane Press walking guides. James Clyne is a keen walker and climber, and has spent much time exploring the wild areas of Victoria, Tasmania and New Zealand. Wildwalks is a small team of professional bushwalkers dedicated to making bushwalking more accessible and safer for our community.
