Book launch – A Bushwalking Paradise—Mugii Murum-ban State Conservation Area

Lithgow Library has announced a return to in-library events with a book launch and author talk by the ever-popular Bushexplorers of their new book A Bushwalking Paradise—Mugii Murum-ban State Conservation Area

The event will be held at Lithgow Library on Saturday 4 December 2021 starting at 11:00am.

Mugii Murum-ban State Conservation Area, dominated by the two pagoda-encrusted mesas of Mount Airly and Genowlan Mountain, is the epitome of nature’s grand design. It contains intricate rock formations, stupendous views, mind-bending intimate spaces, soaring cliffs, rare or endangered plants and animals, and: historic Wiradjuri and European archaeological sites. As a destination, it exerts an addictive, emotional pull that is impossible to resist.

Little known by contemporary bushwalkers except for a group of dedicated adventurers. Mugii Murum-ban is one of the Bushexplorers walking and exploration playgrounds within the Greater Blue Mountains. While nothing can compare to being there, this book, designed for bushwalkers of all experience levels, is intended to bring you very close and to encourage you to plan your own visit.

Michael, Brian and Yuri will speak about their adventures during the event and show photographs of some of the locations in the book. The launch will take place on Saturday 4 December from 10.30am with the talk to commence at 11am; light refreshments will be available, bookings are preferred by contacting Lithgow Library on 6352 9100.

Under the current NSW Government COVID restrictions, all participants must check-in, wear a mask and provide proof of double vaccination.
