Lake Wetherell at Menindee has been named one of the best places in the state to go kayaking.

In a new book called Paddling around New South Wales, authors Scott Rawstorne and Geoff Greenwood praise the lake which they “discovered” in 2008 when they were there as part of their epic “40 paddles in 40 days” tour. On the tour they explored the state’s most varied and beautiful waterways.

They also raised much needed funds for Heartfelt House (www.heartfelthouse.org.au), a non-profit organisation based on the north coast of NSW that provides support for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Scott and Geoff believe that recreational kayaking provides a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in amazing environments without disturbing them or leaving any trace of your visit.

“Mother Nature’s waterways are a gift to kayakers, and the inspiration for Paddling around New South Wales.” They say their book is for everyone who knows the joy of floating quietly into nature, and anyone who has ever dreamed of picking up a paddle. In order to help protect the waterways of NSW, Scott and Geoff have decided to contribute 10 per cent of the purchase price of every book sold through their website www.escapology. com.au to worthy conservation or protection projects.
