A new book ‘The Great North Walk Companion’ is the tale of a family walk along the full 250 km of New South Wales ‘The Great North Walk’ . It can be enjoyed on your couch as an armchair bushie’s adventure or taken along with you in your backpack as you hike Australia’s most accessible trail. Either way there is a new and exciting addition offered by the authors of this paperback – you are invited to try your hand (pen or keyboard) at writing a chapter.
