Melbourne’s Western Gorges


• Our aim is to combine traditional book publishing with online content and compatibility.
• GPS tracks can be viewed on either Google Earth (as a visual overview of the walk) or uploaded to your hand-held navigation device. These files can also be opened on various mapping software packages (such as MapSource) to access detailed information (such as elevation profiles).
• Many of our published walks will eventually be freely available as both .gpx and .kmz files from the drop-down menu.
• We map most of our walking trails using a hand-held Garmin GPSmap 60CSx device. If you don’t own a Garmin GPS device, don’t fret. All of our original Garmin .gdb files have been converted to .gpx files (GPS eXchange Format). This popular open format is commonly used to exchange waypoint, route and track data between various brands of GPS devices and mapping software.
• All of our .gpx files have been simplified to under 500 track points for faster downloading.
• Waypoint data is provided on all our .gpx files and will be kept up to date where possible.


Simply click on the KMZ link with your cursor and the .kmz file will automatically open in Google Earth (as long as you have it installed on your machine). You can left click on the GPX link and save it as a file to your computer. This file can then be uploaded to your hand-held navigation device. Google Earth also has native support for .gpx files containing GPS data. In Google Earth go to File > Open and navigate to your folder containing the downloaded .gpx file. If you cannot see the .gpx file in your folder try selecting the right file type (All File Types). Open the file.
