Quick Overview

Availability: In stock


Arranged according to region, and prefaced with a handy map overview, every walk entry has a brief summary with notes on track gradient, access, and walking times. A special feature of the book is the engaging writing style of the author, who describes history, anecdote, and points of interest along the walk.

Every walk includes a highlight, whether it's an Historic landmark such as Kerikeri's Stone Store, a dramatic natural feature like the Pancake Rocks at Punakaiki or simply a great view.

All 365 walks are three hours or less and are suitable for families with children or those who enjoy walking but do not fancy a long tramp.
