This booklet called '60 Great Short Walks' is probably what you're looking for.

Hi jax11ard, I can also recommend the '60 great short walks',the website says they will post a copy of the brochure on request

I also like the series of books by Jan Hardy and Bert Elson:

- 50 family walks around Hobart

- More family walks around Hobart

- Mount Wellington walks

- 50 family walks around Launceston & NE Tas

- Family walks in northwest Tasmania

This is a popular and recently updated guide:

- 120 walks in Tasmania by Tyrone Thomas

You can read more about them here:
