1 Jan 2013: Today I was taken into another world as I explored the beautiful Maria River. This is truly one stunning river, it has so much to see and so much discover. You just drift amongst its meandering arms and quickly you become immersed in its world. The visuals on top and underneath the waters surface are mesmerising and you are accompanied by the brilliant sounds of the Australian bush. I just love the world which it takes me to. Today I was only going for a quick hour paddle but it ended up turning into a four hour wonder odyssey.
