Are you looking for more out of Paddling? You may be looking for people to go paddling with?

The great thing about Kayaking and Stand up Paddle Boarding is that there are so many Canoe and Kayak Clubs that you will enjoy the adventure with others.

As a member of a club you will often pay a membership fee but the advantage is that you receive all the insurance coverage, advice and general guidance, as well as development days and tours. Paddling groups and Clubs are located throughout Australia and we have compiled a sample to get you started.
