Discover the beauty of our Australian waterways, many accessible only by canoe or kayak.
The Paddle NSW Waterways Guide is maintained by the paddling community to help you explore the many lakes, rivers, bays and coastlines of New South Wales and beyond.
All major waterways are described, with trip suggestions and handy maps showing public access points, nearby accommodation and great camping spots.
The whitewater rivers have detailed notes on rapids and the grade for each river section. The flatwater and coastal waterways have suggested itineraries and points of interest to see.
Plan safe and enjoyable trips by viewing current river levels (updated hourly), and see local weather forecasts, marine forecasts and sea conditions for your chosen destination.
Organise your trips by creating "Float Plans" to mark your intended route and let someone know before you go. Once on the water you can record waypoints to update someone with your progress (updates sent when mobile reception available).
Whether you are a whitewater adrenalin junkie, a kayak fisher, an ocean paddler, or just want to explore an idyllic waterway with your canoe, the PaddleSafe Waterways Guide is your guide to having fun on the water!
