Please note that from Thursday the 19th of September 2019 until Tuesday the 24th of September 2019 the Global Paddler office will be closed so I can take part in the Inaugural Outback Paddle Regatta Festival in Longreach and go on a whirlwind research tour of paddle trails in central Queensland. There may be delays in the delivery of guidebooks and the activation of memberships during that time. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

“The Paddler’s Guide to Queensland is a superb compendium. Full of maps, great advice and experiential tips and hints, this is a thorough introduction to most situations you’ll likely encounter. It’s well laid out and produced with obvious passion and detail.” Outer Edge magazine
“If you can get your hands on a copy of this new guidebook – do it! Even if you don’t paddle, at least admire the pictures! If you do paddle, get ready to want to head north!” Travis Frenay, Paddle & Portage Canoes
“It’s really attractive, colourful, and well written. I can’t believe how many guides there are in it. There’s nothing else on the market this good.” Kate Van Gorcom
“Most impressive. Not only is it a beautiful presentation but its coverage of the trips is excellent. I’ve used a few guides over the years, but none measure up to the excitement that Scott Rawstorne brings to a paddle.” Ian Beasley, author of Kayak – A Collection of Words and Images
