Women's Introduction to Canoeing Workshop

  • Bulimba Street Bulimba, QLD, 4171 Australia

We will start with an introductory session for canoeing, to get everyone up to speed on how to maneuver a boat, and polish the skills of those who have done so beforehand.

This series is a great way for beginner paddlers to develop the skills needed to enjoy the experience of paddling in moving water. Nothing beats the huge grin that accompanies two paddlers working together.

If after this, you just can't get enough of canoeing, sign up for our white water workshop and weekend escape to the Clarence or week long Canoe journey on the Nymboida River in Northern NSW! Both embody a true adventure, with bigger rapids and precious time spent in a pristine remote wilderness, camping in special places, only accessible by the river.

Price: $100pp for 3 hours

What: A half day spent learning and refining the skills required to steer a canoe as a pair. Lots of fun games and laughter with a delicious organic morning tea provided.

When:  8.30am - 12:30pm, Sunday the 12th of March

Where: Bulimba Creek, Preston Rd Park Car park - off Meadowlands Rd, Carindale QLD 4152.

Please Bring: Hat, sunglasses, long sleeved shirt, long shorts, gloves if you wish, and shoes that you are happy to get wet in. A towel and change of clothes for afterwards is recommended.

*Please note that we will assess the water levels closer to the date and may have to shift the whitewater canoeing location depending on conditions. If this occurs we will update you as soon as possible and make an informed decision on the Wednesday prior to the Saturdays event. In saying this, the put in at Kenilworth is generally a reliable section at a variety of levels. These are some of the joys of working out in unpredictable nature :)
