Discovering the Colo Wilderness on Foot

This book describes 20 bushwalks in Wollemi National Park, which is located north-west of Sydney. A central feature of the park is the Colo River which flows through more than 40 kms of rugged wilderness surrounded by huge sandstone cliffs. A number of the walks in the book describe the easier passes into the gorge, while others cover walks in the surrounding areas such as Putty, Mt Wilson, Newnes, and Rylstone. Some history and background of the area is provided as well as suggestions for extended walks, and details of equipment and techniques for bushwalking in the area.
