Welcome to our club....Mandurah Paddling Club caters for most forms of paddling activities, with diverse groups of enthusiastic paddlers sharing the same common interests. These range from sea kayaking to river paddling, white water rapids to ocean surfing and expeditions. Situated in Mandurah, we have access to magnificent waterways, such as the canals, the Peel inlet and estuary, the Murray & Serpentine rivers and the Indian Ocean. Whether it’s training towards your first Avon Descent or taking in the amazing local flora and fauna, there will be a group with the same vision to participate in a safe and enjoyable activity. We also have a wealth of experience to help newcomers who want to take up the sport.

July, Aug and Sept are purposefully kept open and flexible to acccommodate our sporadic winter white water conditions.Keep and eye on the calendar for short notice events and activities.We like to hold at least one Familiarisation Session and at least one safety / rescue session early on in the season for our white water newcomers prior to letting them loose on the big stuff.A good solid combat roll will be a distinct advantage before hitting the rapids, start practicing now.It is also highly likely that there will be some intro to and training for sea skills paddles when conditions allow.Watch this space regularly to find out more.
