Walking & Cycling Canberra’s Centenary Trail, a new book in Woodslanes hugely successful walking guides series, introduces the best day walks and cycles for visitors and residents alike, ranging from leisurely urban strolls to the more rugged tracks deep in the bush. Detailed descriptions and maps help the reader explore the parks, bushland, lakes, rivers and most interesting urban areas along the way. As with previous titles in the series, the book is richly illustrated with over 150 full-colour photographs and detailed maps for every route. A summary table of routes indicating distances, facilities and highlights is included to help the reader find exactly the right route for the occasion. The book covers the full circuit, so those wishing the tackle the whole thing in one adventurous trip, with overnight stops, will also find it invaluable.

 

Nina Hvoslef and Tallis Didcott are passionate about the outdoors and physical activity. They both work in outdoor education. Tallis has lived in Canberra for 34 years, whilst Nina moved here from Norway in 2007. Their interests brought them together whilst working as rafting guides. 

Ninas background as a teacher and interest in writing combines with Talliss extensive outdoor experience and interest in photography to prove a useful combination to create this guide.
