3Penrith Whitewater Stadium

The only man-made river of its kind in the southern hemisphere, Penrith Whitewater Stadium has taken on a new life after being an Olympic venue in 2000. The whitewater course has been constructed using a combination of both natural and man-made materials to recreate the characteristics of a wild river. 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 our friendly staff give you an adventure you’ll never forget! See
