This page describes all of the bushwalking guide books, for overnight bushwalks, that I have found on sale in Australia. There are also many other guide books for one day walks available (not listed here) - some day walk books do appear in the list if they also include a few overnight trips. Most books are only available locally and can be hard to buy. If you are after any of these books, a good place to start is the specialised map and guide book shops - one general starting point are the book sellers on my external links page. Another good source are the bushwalking shops in the state or region close to the walks. There are many, many such shops in Australia, at least 140.

 This page is a free listing for walking guide books - most authors and publishers are not very good at advertising their books. If you know of any others not listed here, then send me some email with details and where it can be obtained. I will obtain a copy and add it to this list - of course I reserve the right to make my own personal comments about each guide. Note that many books only ever had one edition and are now out-of-print. My guess is that many authors gave up when they discovered they did not make their fortune which is no surprise to me as walking guides only sell slowly, 200 to 400 copies per year is a common everage for walking guides! The only source for out-of-print books are libraries or second hand book shops.
