Penrith Whitewater Stadium

Experience the thrills and spills of guided and unguided whitewater rafting and kayaking.

WINTER CLOSURE - There will be no rafting available until Saturday August 14 2021. The office will remain open during the break period with reduced hours and limited staff Monday to Friday.  

The Café is also taking break, and they will be back July 31st.

Penrith Whitewater Stadium offers guided rafting for beginners (12yrs and over) and self-guided rafting for the more adventurous (16 years and over). Located at the foot of the world heritage listed Blue Mountains, Penrith Whitewater is the only man-made river of its kind in the southern hemisphere and was the competition venue for the canoe/kayak slalom events during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. 

The whitewater course was constructed using a combination of both natural and man-made materials to recreate the characteristics of a wild river. More than 14,000 litres per second of raging whitewater flowing over a moveable obstacle system, has proven to be a challenging and exciting ride even for the best paddlers in the world. 

So if you are looking for some extreme fun, then look no further. Let the friendly staff give you an adventure you'll never forget! 90 minutes duration. Bookings are essential for all activities.
Cafe Whitewater is on-site , with an outdoor deck, it's perfect on a sunny day but also has a sheltered area when the weather isn't so glorious.... which isn't too often in Penrith!

Available from September to June - whitewater rafting, kayaking, swiftwater rescue training and local, national and international slalom competitions.
