Buying Maps, Guidebooks etc

The National Trail is now replacing its Guidebooks with accurate A3 styled downloadable maps with a GPS track-lines product to be loaded onto various navigation Apps.

The National Trail consists of twelve sections, many of which are now covered by our downloadable maps. Depending on the Section, there can be 18-20+ maps for each Section with each map costing $2. Those Sections currently not included in our new mapping products are covered by Guidebooks (printed/PDF) that can cost between $20 – $35 plus postage.

But you have to be a member to purchase our maps/guidebooks.

A note on the sale of Maps

The National Trail is an entirely voluntary organisation and we raise most of our funds through memberships and the sale of guidebooks. We don’t have any form of recurrent government funding or corporate sponsorship. Other iconic trails are owned and maintained by government agencies. Our situation is different. We do not control the land over which the trail passes, rather we possess the intellectual property which provides the uninterrupted 5330 km trekking route in eastern Australia that is the National Trail. We rely on the good graces of the many land owners and land managers over which the Trail passes – across three states and the ACT and in particular we seek to protect the interests of the private land owners who make their property accessible to long distance trekkers. We do have to restrict the availability of Maps and Trail Descriptions to NT members only, due to our insurance commitments.

We ask that you join the NT to access  this iconic Trail. Some of the benefits of NT membership include access to the Maps and Trail Descriptions and access to the vast network of section coordinators and ‘Trail Angels’ who freely give support and advice to trekkers. In our experience the ‘Trail magic’ that happens along the route is the added bonus that NT members find on their travels.
