The Great Australian Bushwalk

08/10/2004

The Great Australian Bushwalk takes place on Sunday 24 October 2004 and offers an exciting range of walks around the State in the company of experienced and knowledgeable guides.

Organised by the Tasmania National Parks Association, and supported by the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service, the Great Australian Bushwalk was held for the first time last year by the National Parks Association of NSW. Premier Bob Carr, the Great Australian Bushwalk Patron, launched the event on the 18th October 2003.

This year, the success of the premiere event has lead to the expansion of the Great Australian Bushwalk from a statewide to a national event, with support from such organisations as Arthritis Australia, the Heart Foundation and the Black Dog Institute.

Walks will be held around Tasmania on Sunday 24 October 2004. For details of what walks are available in Tasmania, check www.greataustralianbushwalk.org.au/gab_TAS.htm
