Located just an hour away from Sydney, Penrith Whitewater Stadium was the official venue for kayak and canoe events during the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000. It boasts a man-made whitewater course designed and built after an actual wild river! From September to June, the arena is open to the public for whitewater rafting, kayaking, and even swift water rescue training. Beginners and first-timers should seek the assistance of pro river guides, while self-guided trips are also offered for the daredevils-at-heart. Remember: you have to be physically fit, confident in the water, and a skilled swimmer before going on this wet and wild adventure!
