Moir's Guide South

Postby dclayw » Mon 12 Jun, 2017 11:58 pm

Moir's Guide South seems to be out of print. Have not been able to find it anywhere. Does anyone know where I can buy it, or if it is out of print then perhaps a link to an online pdf version.

I have Moir's Guide North, these books are fantastic resources for getting to some of the out of the way places.

Yes - Amazon US have a used copy for sale, a mere (cough) $200, (that's AU$265) but wait - shipping is free!

Part of the reply from the Alpine Club.

"The rights to this publication are actually held by the author, so unlike our other publications,
there isn't a lot we can do about it until he decides to update and re-release it"

Keep searching, dclayw....& maybe contact the editor Robin McNeill to see if there's going to be a reprint.

Anyone with a copy of the 7th edition (published 2007) of Moir’s Guide South ?

Perhaps someone might be willing to scan a page or two for an upcoming trip I'm finalising.

I've looked high and low for the 2007 edition (or news of a reprint), but only manged to track down older editions in Australian libraries, such as the State Library NSW.

The old book data will do, I guess, but the track notes might be updated and the 2007 edition might reference current maps?

Happy to make any effort worthwhile.

I've had the North guide for years, but recently (a few weeks ago) stumbled on the south guide in a outdoor retail store somewhere. Can't remember exactly where it was tho :shock: - think it might have been in Mountain Equipment in Sydney?

Thanks! I phoned them as soon as I read your post. They had a single copy, so I went in and grabbed it right away. :o

Legend!
