Victoria and The Murray River
Chris andamp; 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.
These books 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.
Paddle eastern Australia: Victoria and The Murray River describes more than 70 rivers (including estuaries) and 90 lakes, as well as a range of creeks, inlets and coastal venues.
