Our world-class, purpose-built White Water Course with Grade 3 Rapids has hosted national and international events, and attracts athletes and water-enthusiasts from all over the world for training and events. 

Built in 1986, the 700-metre, grade 3 White Water Course has held international competitions, including the Commonwealth Games, European Championships and many regional competitions.

Our course isn't pumped, meaning it is not only environmentally-friendly, but it also gives users the flexibility to paddle from 10 o'clock in the morning until late evening, seven days a week!
