Penrith Whitewater Stadium

Penrith Whitewater is located only an hour from Sydney at the foot of the world famous Blue Mountains. Purpose built for the canoe/kayak events during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games; it's the only man-made whitewater river of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.

The channel has been designed to recreate the characteristics of a wild river and provides the watercourse for whitewater rafting and kayaking.

Guided and self-guided trips are offered. Both are 90-minutes in duration.

Guided rafting is an action packed introduction to whitewater rafting. Adventure level is moderate to high. They recommend that you be physically fit, a strong swimmer and be very confident in the water.

Participants must be at least 12 years and have a sense of adventure! The necessary equipment is provided and all fun takes place under the friendly guidance of their trained river guides.
