Douglas said that the reason for the book was to let people know of the variety of walks available around Bridport.

To that end, the book describes 22 walks spread across the Granite Point, Double Sandy Point and Waterhouse conservation areas, Brid River Reserve and the Pearly Brook area.

“The book has photographs and detailed maps depicting tracks and other local features not shown on regular maps,” Douglas said.

“The Waterhouse Conservation Area, for example, is popular with campers, but is infrequently used by walkers even though there are some several excellent coastal tracks along secluded beaches and rock shelves.

“The 11-kilometre town circuit is a carefully constructed path that incorporates the River-Forest Track, Wildflower Reserve Track and the history walk along the foreshore, all of which can be tackled as shorter, separate outings.

“These walks provide much more than an opportunity to just stretch your legs as there is an amazing diversity of plant, bird and animal life around Bridport as well as features of geological and geomorphological interest.”

The book is available at the Bridport Pavilion information centre, Scottsdale Art and Framing or by mail order from Douglas at 2 West Street, Bridport, 7262.

It costs $8, including postage.
