How to Navigate

The art of traditional map and compass navigation in an Australian context

A straight-talking, modern approach to map reading and compass navigation, along with clear explanations of how to really navigate in the Aussie bush through deep awareness and observations of the world around us.  86 pages of photographs, diagrams, stories and how-to’s, told from the perspective of a passionate bushwalker, involved in search and rescue.

Whilst GPS devices and apps have increased in popularity over the past few years, the importance of the traditional skills of how to read a map, use a compass and navigate in the bush, hasn’t changed.

Dick Smith says, “I’ve spent my life and have been on many expeditions where I have had to rely on a map and compass. Caro’s book brings a fresh approach, breaking down old fashioned jargon and making learning how to navigate with a map and compass, easy.”

How to Navigate is suitable for novice navigators getting started, through to experienced bushies who want to brush up on their skills.
