West End Canoe Club Inc is a group of paddlers with a range of experience. Some of us participate in competitive events while others just kayak for fun. The Club is affiliated with Queensland Canoeing.
The Club House is situated on the Brisbane River at Orleigh Park-West End, underneath the South Brisbane Sailing Club. We have hot showers and changing rooms, and some storage space for member and club craft. There are a number of club craft available for use however, we anticipate that all members will eventually get their own kayak.
Brisbane River access is via a concrete boat ramp or a specially designed Kayak launching pontoon. This makes entering and exiting your craft easier.
Joining the West End Canoe Club will provide you with opportunities for fun, friendship and adventure. Kayaking is an activity that people of all ages can enjoy for the whole of their life.
You are never too old to start this wonderful sport at any level, whatever your interests – recreational or racing.
Members meet for a social paddle at 7.00am every Saturday morning (winter schedule), followed by coffee and breakfast at a West End cafe or a sausage sizzel at the club house… And a few keen competitors train together Tuesday and Thursday mornings during the week.
