Penrith Whitewater Stadium was the competition venue for the canoe/kayak slalom events during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Located only an hour from Sydney, it is the only man-made whitewater course of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
The construction of the Stadium was a joint venture between Penrith City Council, the International Canoe Federation and the Olympic Co-ordination Authority.
Penrith Whitewater is available from September to June for guided whitewater rafting, self-guided whitewater rafting, whitewater kayaking and kayak instruction, all of which may be arranged by prior booking. Other facilities include beach volleyball court and Cafe.
