Look at any walk description in A Day in the Bush to identify immediately the book’s distinctive features. All the basic information you need about the walks covered by the book - length, distance from the Sydney CBD, and suitability for children, for example – is immediately accessible. The track notes are presented in a block format so that the stages of the walk are easy to identify and follow. A numbering system is used to help you relate the notes for a particular walk to the accompanying map. The track notes not only guide your steps but also inform you about the landscape and bushland your are passing through.
