Stretch your legs and get away from the city!  Lonely Planet celebrates the great outdoors with two new releases – Lonely Planet’s Natural World and Best Day Walks Australia.

Lonely Planet reveals Australia’s best day walks including Wineglass Bay, Tasmania, the Prince Henry Cliff Walk in the NSW’s Blue Mountains, Mossman Gorge in Far North Queensland, Morialta Gorge Three Falls at the base of the Adelaide Hills and Wreck Beach on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road amongst others.

“Lace up your boots, slap on a hat and take a big gulp of water – Australia’s best day walks are waiting,” encourages Lonely Planet with the release of Best Day Walks Australia, the first in a new series of walking guides from the world’s largest guidebook publisher. From Tasmania’s alpine highlands to the Northern Territories desert canyons; from Queensland’s tropical waterfalls to Sydney’s clifftops; from South Australia’s vine-striped hillsides to Victoria’s mysterious high country, this collection of short walks covers the length and breadth of the country.

Best Day Walks Australia showcases 60 of Australia’s best day walks ranging from three hours to a full day in duration and includes practical tips on walking with kids as well as highlighting accessible trails for those with reduced mobility. With loads of lists and recommendations on the best walks to take for wildlife encounters, stumbling upon Instagram worthy views or a taking relaxing swim at the end of a trek there’s a day walk in this offering for all tastes and abilities.

Lonely Planet’s Natural World lauds the diversity of Australia’s natural wonders profiling Tasmania’s Franklin River, Victoria’s High Country, the Daintree National Park, the Ningaloo Coast and the Simpson Desert. “We’re attempting to reconnect the traveller with nature,” announces Lonely Planet who are celebrating everything outdoors with their latest title release Lonely Planet’s Natural World.
