The Great Walks Dec-Jan isue is back from the printers and on its way to subscribers and newsagents!

The theme for the issue is 'No Passport Required - ultimate adventures right here in Oz!' and we feature some of the country's greatest walks, including a complete north-south traverse of Tasmania.

"There are many ways to describe Tasmania, as it captures people’s hearts in different ways," writes Chris Hall on his challenging Tassie walk. "Ray Glancy, the leader of this epic walk, and his wife Dawn, had their hearts captured decades ago when they first explored the island."

"Ray has since ventured into more rugged, wetter, snow covered, isolated areas of this state, taking along many a fortunate soul from the Brisbane Bushwalking Club. Shannon Bratton (my wife) and I first trekked here in 2016, falling in love with the Overland Track and the grandeur of good ol’ Tassie mountains. We knew through bitter experience that not everything goes according to plan, in any walk, let alone this mammoth task..."

We also feature new tracks in the Snowy Mountains, the Yaraygir Coastal Walk, Victoria's Mount Arapiles and a few days exploring Ned Kelly country.

Plus our Walksmart section looks at the best ways to beat blisters, how to lead a successful bushwalk, top photo tips and the ten essential items you need on any bushwalk.

And we have a special feature on self-guided walks - for those who don't want a guide but need support with transport, maps and food.

And don't forget to try our bumper crossword to test your knowledge on the Australian bush!
