|CANOE - About this website|
|Much of the river canoeing covered here is seasonal, possible only after summer rains, which have been low in most recent years.|
|Some of the urban reaches of Brisbane, Ipswich, Caboolture and the Gold Coast need no more detail than that described in your street directory. Use your preferred street guide to find access to the river, and go exploring.|
This is a guidebook to canoeing venues in Southern Queensland and northern New South Wales. It is not instruction in how to paddle or plan canoeing trips at those venues. All canoeists should use their own judgment and skills at all times. If you are a newcomer to the activity it is recommended that you choose trips appropriate to your fitness and experience.
A river, dam or estuary has the bank or shore to guide you. A sea kayaker is limited only by concern for the weather, and where they wish to camp. The river guides are for paddling downstream. Marine paddling descriptions here have more to do with options on where to camp at night.
The SAFETY notes on this site are a cautionary reminder and are no substitute for sound judgment and caution. Stop and inspect from the bank any river situation you cannot fully see from your canoe.
The gear listed on the GEAR page is a basic list only.
