This guide book features more than 130 paddle-boats found in various parts of Australia. It includes paddleboats presently operating public excursions and cruises on rivers, lakes and harbours around Australia, as well as privately owned boats, and vintage boats that have been restored for static public display.
The majority of paddleboats are to be found on the Murray River but can also be found in several other locations around the country, including Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra, Ballarat and Longreach. This is the first time all these boats have been brought together in a single book.
Each boat is fully illustrated, the majority of the photographs having been taken in the past two years.
