The famous 650km Australian Alps Walking Track traces a tenuous route along the Great Dividing Range from Walhalla to Canberra, crossing many of the highest peaks of Victoria, NSW and ACT.
The author, John Chapman commented that “The previous three editions were written and published by John Siseman (under his Pindari Publications name). He asked us to join with him to produce the 4th edition. This edition is a major rewrite and major redesign – it is printed in colour throughout and has 51 colour topographic maps for the entire track which will reduce the need for some of the maps where the track crosses map corners. We suggest still taking the major maps as they are more useful in emergencies when you have to leave the track to exit from the area. Gradient profiles are improved with more detail and the 175 colour photographs are placed with the text they illustrate. Where needed, notes are provided for the reverse direction from Canberra to Walhalla and there are 46 specific notes for Southbound walkers – as we walked the reverse direction in 2006 we were able to assess where extra information was needed.”
