Offers directions, trail descriptions, and planning tips for Americans who want to discover the Australian outdoors. It is the only guide to cover the entire tropical region of eastern Australia from Northern New South Wales to Far North Queensland. The book describes over 120 hikes in 30 National Parks and wild areas of tropical Australia. Written with North Americans in mind, the guide suggests sensible, economical ways to travel to--and in--Australia.

I used the book this summer while traveling in the northern part of Queensland. I found it to be an ideal companion to the more general guides (Lonely Planet, Fodor's, etc.). The book helped my husband and me to figure out the best places to hike, when we had fairly limited time and many things we wanted to do. It provides the perfect amount of information in a useful format; for each hike the author lists trail distance, hiking time, level of difficulty, and main attractions, and then gives a helpful description of what hikers will see. The author also provides brief descriptions of parks and state forests. I like that the book describes hikes of varied lengths and difficulty. I highly recommend this book to people of any age or fitness who want to hike in the northeastern part of Australia.

Pretty old info, but info that is difficult to find when you are not in Australia. We used it a few times to decide upon which hikesto take and feel it was a reasonable value. I am glad we got it. It helped in our overall trip planning and enjoyment of our trip to Queensland.

I did not like the handdtawn maps. Difficult to use. Not so many trails inside.

The book relates mainly to southern Queensland and has imited coverage of northern Queensland - which happened to be what was most relevant to us.
This book is great for short one or two day hikes it is not what I was actually looking for. It had really good information and descriptions of hikes although I was looking for much longer hikes of weeks not days. The title of the book should mention that they are short one and two day hikes.
