description {

First published in 1968, this book has reached its eight edition and remains the only guide to cover the whole of the east coast of Queensland, the Torres Strait and the Great Barrier Reef.

The current edition, updated to 2003, includes notes on the Gulf of Carpentaria and the Coral Sea. This edition is the biggest yet with larger, more detailed charts and more ports and anchorages than in previous editions. It's as close to a must have guide as your ever likely to find if your plans include cruising along the Queensland Coast.

First published in 1968, Alan Lucas’ Cruising the Coral Coast has long been considered the bible for cruising the Queensland coast. This new ninth edition comprehensively covers the Queensland coast in eight Coastal Notes sections from Point Danger to Cape York, with new sections on the Gulf, NT Coast and Coral Sea reefs in detail with text, maps, photos, interesting facts, and historical information.

Significant detail is provided of anchorages along the coast with detailed maps, approach recommendations, tides, anchorage recommendations, moorings and marinas berths, facilities as well as points of interest. Currents, tides and weather are all discussed in detail. Consideration is given to alternative anchorages, such as when the predominant SE trades change to a northerly aspect.

The ninth edition has an additional 50 pages with updated marina and anchorage information, new charts, an overview of the Gulf, the Top End, the Coral Sea and new photographs.

New edition of what has long been the Bible of this coast. First released in 1976, this is the sixth edition of Cruising the New South Wales Coast. Surveyed and produced aboard the author's vessel Soleares, it describes the entire coast between the Victorian and Queensland borders including all navigable rivers, many well beyond their first fixed bridge for the benefit of those with motor boats, trailer sailors, large tenders, runabouts and kayaks.

This edition also includes Alan's popular Sydney to Central Coast Waterways Guide.
