Day Walks Tasmania

Day Walks Tasmania by John and Monica Chapman describes 40 walking areas around Tasmania with a total of 98 walk variations.

For each walking area, a main walk is described in detail and a series of variations based on the walk are also given if applicable.

Areas covered range from Apsley Gorge, Wineglass Bay, Cape Raoul, Cape Hauy, Mt Wellington (3 walks), Hartz Mountains, South Cape Bay, Mt Field (4 walks), Mt Anne (2 walks), Cradle Mountain (4 walks), Ben Lomond, Mt Arthur, Cataract Gorge, Asbestos Range (3 walks), Mother Cummings Peak, Mersey valley (4 walks), Mt Roland, Black Bluff, Dial Range and Rocky Cape (2 walks).

Walks range from 6 to 22km in length. Of the 95 variations, there are 50 from 2 to 10km, 32 from 10 to 15km, 13 from 15 to 20 km and 3 walks of over 20km. Grades range from Easy to Hard and the grading is similar to that used by most walking clubs in Tasmania hence there is something for everybody. The guide includes walks of all standards and while many of the easy walks are suitable for families, some of the hard walks include off-track sections and are intended for experienced walkers.

The book is a full colour production with colour topographic maps.  Map sizes range from half page to 1 and a half pages for each walk and standard metric scales of 1:25,000 or 1:50,000 are used.  The guide also includes a 2 page key map of Tasmania and a 6 page Walk Index designed to assist with selecting a walk.
