If you enjoy getting out on the water in a canoe or kayak, New South Wales offers many places to paddle.  And the types of paddling options are as wide as a kayak is long.

Must Do

Canoeing, kayaking and go stand-up paddleboarding at locations around NSW

Stand up paddleboarding in Jervis Bay

Coast along the Colo River in the Hawkesbury Valley, west of Sydney, or canoe the gum-lined Edward River in Deniliquin, in the state's country heart. On the North Coast, kayak with dolphins at Nelson Bay or through Bongil Bongil National Park, north of Coffs Harbour.

Stand-up paddleboarding is one of the best ways to get close to nature and explore the NSW coastline. Improve your balance and co-ordination while you experience the best NSW has to offer. 

Glide along the Bellingen River or through Ballina's mangrove forests. South of Sydney, sea kayak and Stand Up Paddleboard in Jervis Bay or canoe through Kangaroo Valley.  Kayak through the wilderness of Ben Boyd National Park on the Sapphire Coast, further south or head to the alpine streams and rivers in Kosciuzsko National Park.
