Have fun exploring wild places around Sydney and NSW. Download maps/photos and detailed track notes for offline use. Short walks to overnight walks.
This app gives you access to topographic maps, tracknotes, photos, terrain profiles and heaps more information for nearly 1000 walks in NSW, check out the full collection of walks on www.wildwalks.com. The walks are found around Sydney, Blue Mountains, Kosciuszko NP and far south coast of NSW
The walks range from 3 mins strolls to multi-day hiking adventures.
Something for everyone from parents taking a stroll with their kids through to remote overnight hikes. Most walks are in National Park, State Forests or Council bushland reserves.
Every walk has a photo gallery, topographic map, terrain profile, tracknotes, details on getting to the trackhead, weather info, user feedback and more.
Download any of the walks and store the maps, photos and tracknotes on your iPhone. Once downloaded the information is still available for when you wander out of phone reception. And yes, there is a little blue dot on the map showing your GPS location, assuming you have a GPS on your device :)
Many walks are 'reversible'. So if the walk goes from Thornleigh to Hornsby, then click on the reverse this walk button and the tracknotes, maps and photo gallery will now take you from Hornsby to Thornleigh.
You can use the handy filter to choose walks based on public transport, length, grade, park or other criteria. Explore your walks in either list or map mode.
I hope you enjoy the app. It has been fun exploring these walks. I hope you enjoy the walks as much as I did, there are so many great places to explore. Happy walking

Ratings and Reviews
A good start
I like the concept, but the app fails to deliver. First, what's up with the pay-per-trail in app purchases? Seems greedy, why would I pay for info I can get for free. Second, lots of trails are missing, lots! Third, the button that locates you via gps is bugged. Would happily pay $3 for working app with full list of trails.
Essential for exploring the Sydney region
I hope they continue to add to the app and the trail database. I've found lots of fantastic weekend bush walks with Wildwalks.
