Explanatory Notes :

 1.  The grading of the "Degree of Difficulty" of the walks

This takes account of various factors including distance, terrain, amount of off-track walking, etc.

Generally, the following applies:

   Easy   

Suitable for beginners e.g. mainly short distances on gentle terrain. Usually on-track. In most cases GPS or compass is not required.

   Medium 

Reasonable level of walking fitness required  e.g. able to walk a minimum of 15 kms over variable terrain in a total of 4-5 hours without significant physical stress (in the cooler months). Reasonable navigation skills also required.  These walks are often more than 15 kms and include variable terrain and/or a significant amount of off-track walking.

   Hard    Same as for Medium grade except includes more challenging terrain in part.
 
 2. Campsites

These are listed for those keen to camp overnight within or near the walk area. However, all of the walks can be completed as day walks without overnight camping. See each walk page for campsite location details.
