In many parts of Australia
(and overseas) paddling guides are becoming old and do not always
keep up with the changing face of paddling, different equipment
The idea of Paddle Australia
is to have a guide that can be constantly and easily updated with
new rivers, sea kayak trips and paddling notes, rather than waiting
many years for the next guide book to be published.
This guide is a forum
in which paddlers from Australia and all over the world can do
one of three things:
information about different rivers and sea kayak trips around
information about rivers and sea kayaking trips that are not
in the Paddle Australia guide, or update information about
trips that are;
this site to access information about and discuss any other
aspect of paddling.
The guide also aims to
generate more interaction; sharing and seeking of information;
new runs; closed runs; issues; etc. between paddlers across Australia;
and to welcome overseas paddlers.
The site is intended
as a guide only, with logistical information and descriptions
on the nature of a river, rather than detailed blow by blow accounts
of every rapid.
The guide is a continually
evolving work (a bit like a river or coastline), it needs your
input to grow and improve. We need your contributions of rivers
and sea kayaking trips and updates on existing submissions. Your
comments, good or bad, will always be welcomed. The Contributions
Page explains how to share your information and opinions.
