Best Walks around Cairns & the Tablelands includes over 45 north Queensland walks from Cooktown down to Hinchinbrook Island. Each walk specifies the distance, the total ascent and descent (if appropriate), the grade and the estimated duration and is accompanied by an accurate full-colour map. Snippets about Queensland’s history and wildlife add colour and interest to the walking experience. Families will enjoy information regarding child-friendly walks, and how to explore the bush safely with children of all ages. Over 150 full-colour photos complement the text, and provide you with a clear sense of the features on each walk. This guide will help you discover many of the classic walks in the region, as well as some wild and adventurous tracks that few know exist.
