The track passes through regions remote from civilisation featuring dense forests, windswept treeless ridges, deep wild valleys and grand mountain tops. Like the scenery, the weather is full of surprises. One day will be a slog through a wintry storm and the next might be lazing in hot sun by a mountain stream.
Active people of all ages can use this book, since it describes many access points from which sections of the track can be walked as day or week-end hikes.
The Australian Alps Walking Track leads from Walhalla in Victoria to Canberra, traversing some of Australia’s highest peaks and ridges along the way. The entire track is remote from civilisation and passes through a mix of dense forest, windswept treeless ridges and deep mountain valleys. It is a serious track for serious bushwalkers.
The book includes detailed sectional track notes and maps, walk gradient graphs, trip preparation and photographs.
