News: Gympie Regional Council has recently opened six new canoe and kayak access points along the Mary River, three of which are close to the town of Gympie and a further three are in the rural country township of Imbil.

Lake Samsonvale, also known as North Pine Dam, is said to be opening to public for canoeing by mid 2018. Hopefully there will then be an entry on these pages, with access points, a map, and some info on walking trails.
The Guidebook contains an index of the paddling destinations covered in these pages.
