By John and Monica Chapman. Second edition, 192 pages, 120 colour photographs, 41 topographic maps. Describes 40 walking areas around Tasmania with a total of 98 walk variations. For each walking area, one walk is described in detail and a series of variations based on the main walk are also given if appropriate. Areas covered range from Apsley Gorge, Wineglass Bay, Cape Raoul, Cape Huay, Mt Wellington (3 walks), Hartz Mountains, South Cape Bay, Mt Field (4 walks), Mt Anne (2 walks), Cradle Mountain (4 walks), Ben Lomond, Mt Arthur, Cataract Gorge, Asbestos Range (3 walks), Mother Cummings Peak, Mersey valley (4 walks), Mt Roland, Black Bluff, Dial Range and Rocky Cape (2 walks).


Walks range from 6 to 22km in length. Of the 95 variations, there are 50 from 2 to 10km, 32 from 10 to 15km, 13 from 15 to 20 km and 3 walks of over 20km. Grades range from Easy to Hard and the grading is similar to that used by most walking clubs in Tasmania hence there is something for everybody. The guide includes walks of all standards, while many of the Easy walks are suitable for families, some of the Hard walks include off-track sections and are intended for experienced walkers.


Changes from Edition 1 to edition 2 are: all maps are now oriented north-south on the page, no need to run the books sideways to read some maps. There are two new walks and another three walks have had major track changes, in particular the 11km return walk to Tatnells Hill is now a 19km circuit. There are also numerous small changes such as new car parks, track realignments and changed track conditions.
