These are the three Tassie guides I have. Lets be honest here, I've not used any of them in anger so I cannot vouch for the things. Cruising Tasmania is the one f182 mentioned.










All of them available from Boats Books which is where I lifted the pics. Links below.

We used a really old Lucas guide book while cruising the Coral Coast is 07/08. Good humour in Lucas's style and description of the coast 30 years ago or so...Get up to date charts, Lucas info good, but will be a bit dated. I left my guide book at the Darwin Yacht club, so there is a freebie around, as well as my charts.

Creeks & Harbours of the Gippsland Lakes by Richard Hawkins was the one I used when I used to regularly spend time at the lakes.

If you are not familiar with the Gippsland Lakes they are not bad. My copy (4th ed 1994) contains 26 mud maps plus detailed instructions on each section, ie Paynesville Harbour has a detailed map plus a page of instructions / details. Looks like the latest ed is the 7th.

Re: Cruising Guides - Australia

At last an Australian cruising guide that can be updated ~ view it straight off the net !

Tasmania
South Australia
Queensland
Mud maps for Kimberely

We're working on the Top end and NW WA. Contributions very welcome.


This Tasmania Guide
is also available in 3 formats, printable PDF, iPad or kindle.

Of the others we have found the WA guide to be accurate and useful, updated by contributions. JackandJude.com has anchorages listed for the isolated WA south coast. Plenty of photos to bring reality to the words and diagrams.
