Sydney's Best Bush Park & City Walks includes 18 easy walks, 25 medium walks and 8 hard walks, plus 12 walk variations. Each walk specifies the distance, the total ascent and descent, the grade and the estimated duration and is accompanied by an accurate full-colour map using latest GPS technology. Snippets about Sydney's history and the environment throughout the book add colour and interest to the walking experience. Families will enjoy information regarding child-friendly walks, and how to explore the bush safely with children of all ages. Over 150 full-colour photos complement the text, and provide you with a clear sense of the features on each walk. This guide will help you discover many of Sydney's classic walks, as well as some wild and adventurous tracks that few know exist.
Sydney has some outstanding walks right in the heart of the city. Most Sydneysiders know of the well-trodden Bondi-to-Coogee and Spit-to-Manly walks but Sydney's Best Harbour and Coastal Walks details thirty seven waterside walks from Brisbane Water National Park in the north to the Royal National Park in the south. Everyone in the community is aware of the need for daily activity to keep healthy and walking is increasingly popular with people who would not call themselves bushwalkers. In Sydney's Best Harbour and Coastal Walks, Katrina O'Brien, travel guide author and local resident, combined her walking experience and passion for Sydney's undeveloped places to produce a bestselling user-friendly guide to the city's best quiet and wild walks as well as the classic walks. In this 2nd edition the walks have all been re-walked and updated, and the book has been arranged to better follow Sydney's Great Coastal Walk - a route now being actively promoted by various Sydney tourism bodies and councils. The book fully covers the entire route from Palm Beach to La Perouse, and also includes dozens of walks around the harbour and further afield, including the Royal National Park, Ku-ring-gai and a new walk from Patonga to Pearl Beach in Brisbane Water National Park. The text is complemented by more than 150 full-colour photographs and detailed full-colour maps.

The world’s bestselling travel book is back in a more informative, more experiential, more budget-friendly full-color edition. A #1 New York Times bestseller, 1,000 Places reinvented the idea of travel book as both wish list and practical guide. As Newsweek wrote, it “tells you what’s beautiful, what’s fun, and what’s just unforgettable— everywhere on earth.” And now the best is better. There are 600 full-color photographs. Over 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries like Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. There is an emphasis on experiences: an entry covers not just Positano or Ravello, but the full 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi Coast. Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed, rewritten, and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, starred restaurants and historic hotels such as the Ritz,but also moderately priced gems that don’t compromise on atmosphere or charm. The world is calling. Time to answer.
With fresh journalistic writing and reams of information on what to see and do, this guide takes readers from the big cities to the countryside. Includes candid reviews on restaurants and accommodations for all budgets. 83 maps. Full-color insert. Two-color throughout.
