The best way to get a feel for Australia is through the soles of your feet and a new App gives you the inspiration and information to have some serious fun exploring the country on foot.
Australia Bushwalking, by Australian freelance travel writer-photographer Melanie Ball, is an App for iPhone, iPad and Android. Step out with her on more than 90 hikes from short to epic and desert to sea.
Designed to help you choose a walk suiting your interests and fitness, from the comfort of an armchair (this is NOT a trail guide), this App has 154 entries and 1000-odd images describing and illustrating the terrain of each walk and the wildlife you might encounter along the way.
What will you get? First-hand experience from a passionate bushwalker plus information on wildflowers, trees, birds, Aboriginal culture, technology and safety, and links to sources for maps and detailed trail notes.
Fancy a leg-stretch in Australia? This App is for you!
