Outstanding Scenic Walks of New Zealand by Peter Janssen
Outstanding Scenic Walks is for everyone who enjoys walking. In this fully revised, new edition of his guide, Peter Janssen recommends more than 200 short scenic walks ranged according to region. All the walks will suit those who want an enjoyable outing that doesn't require heavy boots and a pack, especially travellers who are short on time or those with young families. Every walk includes a highlight, whether it's the tallest tree, a spectacular natural feature, dramatic scenery, or an encounter with the penguins found along the Otago coast in the South Island. Natural history notes draw walker's attention to particular features of NZ's flora and fauna, describing endemic and native plants, birds and animals to be discovered along the way. Each walk entry includes: Travel Directions, Walking Time, Track and nature notes.
