Auckland's Best Bush, Coast & City Walks

The full-colour guide to over 40 fantastic walks
Table of

Auckland boasts a huge range of beautiful environments, making the city and the country around it perfect for exploring on foot. Aucklands Best Bush, Coast & City Walks, joins the hugely successful (hitherto only Australian) walking guides series from Woodslane Press. The book introduces the best walks for visitors and residents alike, ranging from fascinating city walks and leisurely bay-side strolls to the more natural parklands and bush tracks beyond the urban fringes. Detailed descriptions, clear directions and colour maps help the reader explore Aucklands parks, bushland, coast and beaches, rivers and most interesting urban areas. As with previous titles in the series, the book is richly illustrated with over 150 full-colour photographs. A summary table of walks indicating distances, facilities and highlights is included to help the reader find exactly the right walk for the occasion.
