“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
