Guide to paddling on the Tweed

A PADDLING enthusiast is set to release a comprehensive guide to canoeing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding in the Tweed region.

The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales 2nd Edition is the latest in a series of guidebooks created by Australian kayak instructor and self- published author Scott Rawstorne.

The Tweed offers some of the country’s best waterways and Rawstorne wanted to highlight the region in the book.

“The book features locations including Clarrie Hall Dam, Terranora Broadwater, Tygalgah Island, Stotts Island, Cudgen Creek and Pottsville,” Rawstorne said.

Each paddling course is a minimum of 10km but Rawstorne said anyone can achieve the distance.

He said paddling was one of the fastest growing recreations in the country.

“It’s a healthy sport where you can get outdoors and there’s a lot to love about it,” Rawstorne said.

Rawstorne himself trekked all locations featured, carefully noting each as he went.

The book will be released in the next fortnight and will be available at the Murwillumbah Visitor Centre.
