The comprehensive guidebook for the walk is only available to walkers booking The Great Gold Walk. The guide contains 58 route maps, 7 town guides and maps, plus detailed route notes. The guide also gives an overview of the history of the areas and towns to be visited, plus many helpful hints on walking in Australia.
The guidebook’s maps and route notes allow the walker to readily navigate the route. In addition, Great Dividing Trail (GDT) posts mark much of the route.
It is always advisable to carry a compass.
