Exploring Tasmania's wilder side

From remote hiking trails to absurdly picturesque waterfalls, Australia's island state of Tasmania has plenty to please anyone who wants to get off the beaten track.

If you are more a tent person than a luxury resort person; a picnic personality rather than a fine dining fan, the a new book from Woodslane Press might be right up your alley.

Written by Gillian Souter, Discovering Natural Tasmania is a really nifty guide for anyone looking to take some roads, tracks or mountain trails less travelled on the Apple Isle.

While Tasmania may be well known for its gourmet restaurants and fine cool-climate wines, many visitors come simply to get away from it all.

Tasmania really is an outdoor lover's paradise - over half of island consists of national parks, reserves and state forests.

These abound with walks and treks, sights of interest, lookouts, activities, wildlife encounters, adventures, beaches and remote places to stay.

I live in Tasmania and made a whole lot of discoveries about places that I had either not heard or, or added to my "to do" list.

The book is well set out, illustrated with over 200 full-colour photographs and dozens of detailed maps.

Discovering Natural Tasmania by Gillian Souter is published byWoodslane Press and is available at bookstores and online. RRP: $34.99
