ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Deb Heyes and Julie Mundy have been keen walkers their whole lives, and have been walking together for over 10 years, including a pretty wild and wonderful adventure to Patagonia. This is Julie’s fifth and Deb’s second walking guidebook for Woodslane Press, and researching, walking and writing them is both full on and wonderful. Exploring the Grampians has been right up there with some of their favourite walking ever, and now any excuse is a good one to be out there.
