description {

Paddle Eastern Australia: Victoria & The Murray River has been based on a series of earlier books written by the same authors - The Rivers and Lakes of Victoria: A Canoeing and Camping Guide (three editions). This thoroughly revised and updated book has plenty to offer anyone interested in canoeing, kayaking, rafting, waterside camping and any associated water based activity.

Paddle Eastern Australia: Victoria & The Murray River describes more than 70 rivers (including estuaries) and 90 lakes, as well as a range of creeks, inlets and coastal venues. It also includes information on general localities, access points, river gradings, the major features of each locality and camping options at each locality.

The descriptions are accompanied by sketch maps and photographs. The Paddle Smart - Paddle Safe section provides invaluable information, insights and hints for safe, enjoyable paddling. A comprehensive table of contents and an index ensures ease of use.

This book will appeal to a range of people, the hands-on paddler, whether a beginner at the sport or with plenty of experience, the recreational 'occasional' paddler, the outdoor education professional and the 'armchair' paddler who doesn’t want to get wet!

Chris and Yvonne McLaughlin's writings and photographs on paddling and associated activities have been published in guide books, magazines, newspapers and on a postage stamp. Based in Melbourne they regularly paddle a variety of rivers, lakes and estuaries throughout Australia.

Australia: Off the Beaten Track describes fifty plus top 4wd trails, from the desert north-west to remote mountain hideaways, and from the coast to mountain bushland. Many traverse remote and rugged country, where well prepared adventurers can enjoy the challenge of back country tracks.

Australia: Off the Beaten Track is more than a description of trips, it provides comprehensive track notes, tour maps, camping information, planning advice and describes the main highlights of various trips, from high country huts and forgotten goldfields to forest canopies and rare fauna and flora. As well, advice on technique, such as driving in sand, mud or snow, water crossings, handling steep climbs and steep descents is included, as well as tips on topics such as vehicle recovery, winching, tyre pressures, bush navigation and communications. A comprehensive table of contents ensures ease of use and an abundance of mud maps and photographs make for pleasant and informative reading.

This is an invaluable guide and reference for everyone interested in the outdoors, four-wheel driving and those 'off the beaten track' special areas. Australia: Off the Beaten Track will appeal to all those who want to experience great trips with information and advice always at hand from two very experienced travellers.

Murray White has travelled extensively throughout Australia in his 4wd, exploring many lesser known destinations. He is an experienced 'bush mechanic' and skilled in all aspects of four-wheel driving. His articles and photographs on 4wd trips have been widely published in books, magazines and newspapers.

Anthony McLaren is an inveterate traveller, and his favourite destination is 'somewhere new'. A keen bushwalker and bird observer, he likes nothing better than to be in camp, reading maps, making notes and enjoying Australia's great diversity of scenery. Anthony has contributed to a range of magazine and newspaper articles, and his photographs have appeared in a number of publications.
