Walking is one of the most popular recreational activities in New Zealand. The 365 short walks presented here mean both locals and overseas visitors will never be at a loss to find a short walk anywhere in the country. All of the walks are three hours or less and will suit those who enjoy walking but do not want a long tramp with heavy boots and a pack, or travellers who are short on time and those with young families.

Arranged according to region, and prefaced with a handy map overview, it's easy to see at a glance where the walks can be found in each region. 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, describing history, anecdote, and points of interest along the walk.

Day Walks are one of the most popular recreatational activities in New Zealand - You can discover a new walk every day.
