Est. 1978.
Kayaking, canoeing and SUP paddling are extremely rewarding sports and pastimes that offers many exciting pathways. The physical benefits of participating in this challenging outdoor activity are many, and the pure enjoyment of a paddling session, whether it is part of an elite training program or just simply to get out on the water for fun, makes paddling the perfect release from the demands of our daily lives.

The West Lakes Canoe Club is located at the northern end of West Lakes at Aquatic Reserve on Bower Road, West Lakes with a boat ramp and beach providing easy access to the lake. Our facilities include a club room, boat shed, change rooms and toilets. We share the change rooms and toilets with the other tenants in the building Paddle SA and Dragon Boats SA. The West Lakes Canoe Club provides an excellent environment and training/coaching structure for developing paddlers who wish to compete, or for those who just want to enjoy paddling as a recreational pastime. We run regular “Come and Try” days for all age groups.
