About Good Walking Books

GOOD WALKING BOOKS began as an idea of sharing walking journeys that we had experienced in Europe, South America and Australasia. Many people have said that they ‘would love to walk those paths, but don’t know where to begin’. So we set about to create a range of books, ebooks and educational courses to share our experiences.

Journey of the Month

HISTORIC TASMANIA: Once known for its remote penal settlements and harsh environment, it attracted colonial settlers with the promise of free land grants issued by the government. Denigrated for wiping out its indigenous peoples and animal species such as the Thylacine (the Tasmanian Tiger), its wilderness now attracts walkers from all over the world. Tasmania has a wealth of colonial era buildings, sites and stories to tell. We travel the Heritage Highway from Hobart to Launceston in search of these stories. If you enjoy Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture, good food, great natural scenery and tales of the old days, then this island will delight you.
