The popular Woodslane Walking Guides will release a new book in August 2023. The Grampians  Peaks Trail will be the first independent guide dedicated to the GPT, complementing the official  maps. It is an indispensable resource for those seeking to plan and undertake the hike, either in  one go, or in sections.

Victoria’s multi-day Grampians Peaks Trail covers 164 kilometres of spectacular scenery and  challenging hiking from Mt Zero in the North to Dunkeld in the South, traversing three major  mountain ranges along the way. Over 13 varied days, the GPT takes in almost the same amount  of elevation and descent as it would be to climb Mt Everest.

This book is richly illustrated with full colour photographs and detailed maps for each section. As well as extensive planning notes, there  are detailed walk notes for each of the 13 official days walks, with flexible ‘build your own walk’  options for those seeking to do the GPT as a series of day or sectional walks. The book also  contains much Information on transport, food drop, camping and water as well as local history, environment and wildlife.

Authors Deb Heyes and Julie Mundy have been keen walkers their whole lives, and have been  walking together for over 15 years, including a pretty wild and wonderful adventure to Patagonia.  This is Julie’s seventh and Deb’s fourth walking guidebook for Woodslane Press. It follows their  successful Best Walks of the Gariwerd Grampians (2nd ed).
