Author Alan Ernst combines his local knowledge with his passion for bushwalking. In his choice of the best walks, he includes not only the popular walks in the main tourist areas, but also many quieter tracks that few know exist.
Each walk includes a detailed description, trek rating, full-colour map and full-colour photos. The book includes a range of walks from 30-minute strolls to 6-hour full-day walks, and is full of suggestions for walkers of differing experience.
The 33 walks reveal a side to the Gold Coast that few tourists get to know: Rainforests resonating to the sound of whipbirds, waterfalls and quiet creeks, not to mention long stretches of deserted coastline.
