Read about the Ned Kelly gang, Captain Starlight, Ben Hall and many other bushrangers of our colonial past. With a keen imagination, the historic locations can transport the modern explorer back to the wild days of the early settlement when gold glittered, guns blazed, and men and women struggled. Bushranger Tracks is the result of Gregory Powell s continuing passion for Australian history and, in particular, the bushranger era. This is possibly the most extensive book detailing bushranger sites ever published.


Gregory Powell combines his interests in bushwalking and history to explore historical and scenic regions on foot. He is the author of books
exploring the Snowy Mountains, the Blue Mountains and Hunter Valley and has published four bushranger locality books. Greg was a founding member of Hunter Bushrangers (formerly Rovent Historical Re-enactments), a living history group formed in 1969 which performed at public events all over the state until 2009.
