A Guide to Northeastern New South Wales: walking, canoeing, caving, Climbing
1 A Guide to Northeastern New South Wales: walking, canoeing, caving, Climbing
Armidale University of New England Mountaineering Club 1981 4th Edition Stapled Cover Good Large 8vo Richard Hale 
x + 109 pages. This guide aims to describe some of the potential for outdoor recreation within that area of New South Wales which runs south from the Queensland border to the Manning River, and west from the coast to the Warrumbungle and Nandewar Ranges. within this area there exists a wide variety of topography and vegetation and a correspondingly wide potential for outdoor recreation. Although much of the region has been cleared for agriculture or is subject to intensive forestry operations, relatively large natural areas remain. The general environmental characteristics of North Eastern New South Wales are described in this introduction together with some information which is general to most forms of outdoor recreation in the region. This is followed by sections dealing with four major types of outdoor recreation: walking, canoeing, caving and climbing. The walking section is by far the largest of these, describing a very wide variety of walks with grades varying from easy to hard. The canoeing section is also quite comprehensive although little emphasis is placed on flat water trips in the more heavily developed areas of the coastal regions, and the western slopes and plains. The caving section is less detailed than the preceding two in that the actual loca tions of cave entrances are not given because of extensive vandalism of many of the caves in the region. Interested persons are referred to recognised speleological societies. The climbing section is intended as a general introduction to the scope for climbing in the region. Detailed route descriptions are not given as these have been published in a number of guidebooks covering specific climbing areas.
