This book is now available. This is the first edition published by us. Overall it is the 4th edition - the previous 3 editions were published by the Geelong Walking Club in 1986, 1996 and 2001. The new edition has 184 pages, 109 colour photographs, 46 colour topographic maps, ISBN 1 920995 12 6, Recommended Retail Price is A$39.95.

The new edition covers one day walks in the Otway Ranges and also covers the Great Ocean Walk as a series of one day walks.

This book has been redesigned to fit into the style used in our range of books. We have drawn new maps, reorganised and expanded the introductions and notes and included many more photographs. While we have walked many of the tracks, we have not walked everything and resposibility for the accuracy of the notes rests with the Geelong Walking Club. The walks have also been altered. Some were deleted due to tracks overgrowing or issues with access while some new walks have been added. Most of the Great Ocean Walk has also been included as a series of x day walks.

Some have asked for an online version of our books - see my online policy page about why we do not have the spare time to do this and why it is not worthwhile doing it for our books.
