Karana District Kayak and Canoe Club

If the idea of getting out on the water for some fun fitness and friendship appeals to you, then Karana District Kayak and Canoe Club is a great place to start.

Since being formed 25 years ago, our club has welcomed people of all ages and abilities to join in have fun with a paddle in your hand. Your interest may be enjoying paddling on the calm waters of the Brisbane River, going on recreational paddles or training and entering competitions.  Whatever it is, you’ll find friends who share your enthusiasm.

Alongside our experienced members it is easy to get started and learn as you go in an inclusive, safe, social environment.

You don’t need your own kayak, as we have plenty of equipment for you to try.
