Describes 40 walking areas around Sydney with a total of 88 walk variations. For each walking area, one walk is described in detail and, if appropriate,a series of variations based on the main walk are provided.
Walks range from 5 to 19km in length. Grades range from Easy to Hard and the grading is similar to that used by most walking clubs in Victoria 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 require some untracked walking and are intended for experienced walkers.
The book is a full colour production with colour topographic maps. Map sizes range from half page to 2 pages for each walk and standard metric scales of 1:12,500, 1:25,000 or 1:50,000 are used . The guide also includes a 2 page key map of the Sydney area and a 6 page Walk Index designed to assist with selecting a walk. An innovation over some books are the inclusion of gradient profiles showing climbs and descents, all at identical scales enabling easy comparison between different walks.
