The ever popular Bushexplorers will launch their new book Wollemi National Park: Day walks from Newnes – Part 1, at a speaker event at Lithgow Library on Saturday 23 March 2019.

The town of Newnes provides one of the most accessible entry points into the spectacular and wild Wollemi National Park, part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. What sets this region apart is the amazing and unique geology, history, flora and remote pristine places. And yet it is located within a couple of hours drive from Sydney and a short trip from Lithgow.

This book is about the spectrum of walking opportunities around Newnes that can be accomplished in a day trip. It features spectacular lookouts, cliffs, rock formations, slots, passes, caves, overhangs, rainforest ravines, ledges and traverses, as well as a concise history of the Wolgan Valley.

“Newnes is a great place to access the fantastic Wollemi National Park and this new book will help to encourage visitors to explore some of the wonderful scenery in our local area and gain some knowledge of the history of Newnes,” said Mayor Ray Thompson.

With over 3,300 bushwalks behind them, Michael Keats, Brian Fox and Yuri Bolotin take you on adventure after adventure exploring the hidden gems of the Wollemi National Park. The walks described in the book range from the very easy to the extreme. The great thing about a visit to Newnes is that you can be as energetic or as laid back as you wish.

Michael, Brian and Yuri will speak about their adventures during the event and show photographs of some of the locations in the book.
