Gone for Shore - A Guide to Sea Kayaking in North Queensland
Local paddler Tim Trehearn has put together a guidebook covering the region from Townsville to Cooktown, written from a kayaker's perspective. Not just any kayaker, Tim has spent nearly 40 years paddling in the area & knows it backwards. Here's Rob's thoughts on the book:
"This is more than just an excellent kayaking guide for North Queensland. Dont be mistaken by this modest size of this book, it is rich in images, maps, details, anecdotes and a deep respect and appreciation for the North Queensland Coast. I have paddled the areas covered by the book, some of them several times but on reading Tim's guide realised how much more there is to discover. It makes me want to go back to find some of the special places I have paddled straight past on previous journeys. It is widely accepted that local knowledge is an invaluable resource in any trip plan and underpinning this book are decades of kayaking experience in North Queensland. Even better, despite the inevitable repetition that the guide book format can impose on the subject matter this actually easy and enjoyable to read and a worthy addition even if you don't have the trip scheduled and the charts on the dining room table.
