Great Walks of New Zealand is a tribute to New Zealand's eight finest walking tracks, by renowned wilderness photographer Craig Potton. Based on the best-selling Classic Walks of New Zealand, this book has been updated and revised to focus on our Great Walks, a reflection of the international prominence these tracks now rightly enjoy. Tracks included are Stewart Island's Rakiura Track, the Kepler Track, the Milford Track, the Routeburn Track, the Heaphy Track, the Abel Tasman Coast Track, the Tongariro Northern Circuit Great Walk, and the Lake Waikaremona Track in Te Urewera. With 3D overview maps from Geographx and up-to-date track information, Great Walks of New Zealand combines words and photographs to rekindle memories of past trips, and to inspire readers to new experiences on these magnificent tracks.
