Day walks are one of the most popular recreational activities in New Zealand, enjoyed by both New Zealanders and overseas visitors alike. In 2006 nearly half a million tourists completed either a half-day bush walk or a full day of trekking or tramping. This is t surprising given New Zealand hosts a highly accessible network of conservation and reserve areas, offering everything from leisurely 1-2 hour coastal and beach walks, to full on 8-hour plus days through lush beech forest and alpine areas, and everything in-between. Day Walks in New Zealand is the latest tramping guide in the invative, new Bird's Eye Guide series. Written by Shaun Barnett, the best-selling author and photographer of Bird's Eye Guide Tramping in New Zealand, Day Walks in New Zealand also uses latest generation 'bird's eye' computer-generated maps, showing a tramping route in three dimensions something unable to be achieved with a conventional topographical map. Each walk is supported by relevant route information and there are full-colour photographs throughout from Shaun's own photo-library.Walks are selected from the entire country and include day walks suitable for first-timers and families, as well as options for those with a higher level of fitness and experience. The combination of maps, photography and writing from the country's leading tramping writer arguably makes this the best New Zealand day walk book available. Bird's Eye Guides continue to set a new standard in tramping and tourist publications.
Shaun Barnett has enjoyed tramping since discovering the Kaweka Ranges as a teenager in Hawkes Bay. He has tramped extensively throughout New Zealand as well as in Tasmania, Alaska, Canada and South America. After turning to full-time writing and photography in 1996 he has co-authored the Montana New Zealand Book Award-winning Classic Tramping in New Zealand, as well as recent best-sellers North Island Weekend Tramps and the highly successful Bird's Eye Guide Tramping in New Zealand. Shaun also contributes to the New Zealand Wilderness Magazine GeographX is a Wellington-based digital mapping company.
