This is the guide for the Australian Alps Walking Track which runs from Walhalla near Melbourne to Canberra. It includes full track notes to the 660km route. An essential companion for anyone intending to walk the track.  

The book contains 240 pages, 175 colour photos and 51 - 1:50,000 topographic 

The 5th edition is the same size as the previous edition. While the track has remained in the same location, there are many small changes like water tanks, minor road and track re-alignments and an alternative route for when the Murrumbidgee River is too dangerous to cross safely. Also due to a new walking track being created, the official route of the track through part of the Kosciuszko National Park has been moved to a much better alignment. Its still not as interesting as the untracked route across the Rolling Grounds but if you have to leave the tops is a far more pleasant walk than the previous alignment which was nearly all road bashing.
