Bush walk guide

Michael Smith has done a lot of walking. Being the vice-president of the Nimbin Bushwalkers Club would help. Michael has just released a book Bushwalking in the Rainbow Region which describes 59 day walks you can do in the Northern Rivers.

With plenty of helpful hints (dont wear a sarong), gradings, colour photos, maps and features to look out for, this little self-published beauty is a must-have for those contemplating a walk in the bush whether it be a stroll (grade one) or a bit of a scramble (grade six).

Bushwalking in the Rainbow Region is available for $7 at the Lismore Information Centre (Heritage Park) and Lismore bookshops.

Or email Michael at notmichael@bigpond.com.
