The idea of a national walkway, which would run from one end of New Zealand to the other, providing ready access to the countryside for both town dweller and dedicated tramper, caught the imagination of this country’s legislators in the mid-1970’s.
Parliament passed a act in 1975 setting up the legal framework to establish a network of tracks that would eventually join up, like liks in a chain, to provide a walking route from North Cape to Bluff.
The AA Book of NZ Walkways is intended to bring these places to the notice of the public-at-large, to be used as a planner and a guide to the Walkway system and to encourage people of all ages and shapes to ‘go for a walk’.
This is a second hand book.
