Penrith Whitewater Stadium was the competition venue for the canoe/kayak slalom events during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Located only 20 minutes from Richmond, it is the only man-made whitewater course of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. 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. 14,000 litres per second of raging whitewater flowing over a moveable obstacle system has proven to be a challenging and exciting ride even for the best paddlers in the world.
