Unless otherwise noted, images are from Boat Books (Australia) web site who would stock all of the guides mentioned. For overseas buyers you could also try Boat Books New Zealand. I've used them a few times and found their online mail order service to be quite efficient and being Kiwis they are a friendly mob as well.

Boat Books NZ (SW Pacific Cruising Guides) List

This list is compiled from my library and posted suggestions. As suggestions come in I'll add them to this list. All cruising guides seem to have their limitations. You take the author's advice at your own peril.
