234-Best Walks of NSW Mid North Coast guidebook-Interview with the Author

Show notes

The NSW mid north coast is a bit of an unknown for us and we are hoping to get up that way over the next 12 months to do some hiking and wanted to do a bit of preplanning.  This newly released guidebook, Best Walks of NSW MID NORTH COAST, by author Yvonne Everett is just the ticket providing an overview of some great hiking options in this region. In today’s episode we catch up with Yvonne and talk with her about hiking on the mid North NSW coast and her new guidebook.
