Building on the success of his highly successful North and South Island Short Walks books, inveterate tramper Peter Janssen presents 200 short nature walks in New Zealand that are ideal for those people who like to stretch their legs without having to tackle a full tramp.

With the informative ‘nature notes’ walkers can identify some of the country’s more intriguing flora and fauna as they discover the natural beauty of New Zealand’s outstanding scenery and unique landforms. The walks are grouped by region, and each can be accomplished within the span of a couple of hours (and some much less), putting them well within the grasp of most walkers.

Each walk includes: • short summary • location detail • grade and time to complete the walk … and full track notes. Regional maps are included, and a short introduction to the book gives information on bush safety, practical considerations and information on how to consult the entries.
