    Between Sydney and Canberra lies a walkers playground of idyllic swimming holes, sparkling creeks, fascinating formations and historic hamlets. The Southern Highlands and the countryside that fringes it is a diverse landscape filled with secret gullies and dramatic escarpment. Regardless of your fitness level or experience, the best way to discover these environments is to set off on foot. This second edition of Best Walks of the Southern Highlands, part of Woodslanes popular walking guides series, introduces the best walks for visitors and locals alike, ranging from strolls through historic villages and wildflower walks across heathland to more difficult hikes up volcanic hills and down river valleys.

    Gillian and John Souter live in a village in Jervis Bay and have enjoyed recreational walking for many years. As well as this book on the Southern Highlands they have also written two another Woodslane guides, Best, Coast and Village Walks of the Illawarra and Best Walks of the Shoalhaven, plus three books on walking in Europe: Classic Walks in Western Europe, Walking Italy and Walking France. Their title Slow Journeys is an entertaining ramble among the pleasures and practicalities of walking.
