Advertise your business

Advertising your business through Global Paddler is the best way to promote your products and services to a large and qualified audience of dedicated Australian paddlers.

Global Paddler is the most prolific creator of paddle guides for Australian waterways.  A new guide is uploaded to this website at an average of one per week and we have created a series of guidebooks which includes The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales (1st & 2nd editions), The Paddler’s Guide to Queensland, The Paddler’s Guide to Victoria, The Paddler’s Guide to Melbourne, and The Paddler’s Guide to South Australia. Product reviews and paddling related articles are posted to our blog regularly and emailed to our members and subscribers on a monthly basis.

Global Paddler books are sold through the Global Paddler online store and a network of more than 50 retail outlets. Close to 7,800 copies have been sold and our readership is much higher than that. Unlike magazines which come out monthly or quarterly and get recycled after they are read, our books have been on display in shops for close to five years now and are now a permanent source of reference material in people’s homes.


Global Paddler’s aim is to get as many people into paddling as we possibly can and we love promoting and supporting businesses who are also dedicated to that goal. That’s why our rates are so incredibly low in comparison to any other promotional opportunity that will enable you to reach such a large audience of dedicated paddlers.
