Canoeing, kayaking and go stand-up paddleboarding at locations around NSW
Kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddleboarding are three unbeatable ways to explore the inland and coastal waterways of NSW. Whether you’re keen to navigate a creek, glide down a river or explore an estuary or coastline, the North Coast, Central Coast and South Coast all have canoe, kayak and stand-up paddleboard hire available.
Head further inland to Country NSW, enjoy other unique water experiences in the historic and winding waterways of the state's heart. Paddle the Colo River, which flows to the Hawkesbury River near Windsor, west of Sydney. Or canoe between the tranquil gum trees that line the Edward River in Deniliquin.
During the warmer months, head to the stunning alpine streams of Kosciuzsko National Park and take to the fresh, coursing waterways in your kayak or canoe.
