Discover the beauty of our Australian waterways, many accessible only by canoe or kayak.

The Paddle NSW Waterways Guide is maintained by the paddling community to help you explore the many lakes, rivers, bays and coastlines of New South Wales and beyond.

All major waterways are described, with trip suggestions and handy maps showing public access points, nearby accommodation and great camping spots.

The whitewater rivers have detailed notes on rapids and the grade for each river section. The flatwater and coastal waterways have suggested itineraries and points of interest to see.

Plan safe and enjoyable trips by viewing current river levels (updated hourly), and see local weather forecasts, marine forecasts and sea conditions for your chosen destination.

Organise your trips by creating "Float Plans" to mark your intended route and let someone know before you go. Once on the water you can record waypoints to update someone with your progress (updates sent when mobile reception available).

Whether you are a whitewater adrenalin junkie, a kayak fisher, an ocean paddler, or just want to explore an idyllic waterway with your canoe, the PaddleSafe Waterways Guide is your guide to having fun on the water!

Was good, but functionality now missing

I used this a lot last season to plan kayak trips, but the river height data that used to be part of the app doesn’t seem to work.

Update: got a reply today...

Our web site support has finally had time away from other clients to fix the river level process on the waterways guide. So we now have the information available from the Bureau of Meteorology being updated on the Waterways guide. We are still working on the data from the NSW office of water and will also look at other sources in other states.

I am pretty sure this has been as frustrating for you as it has been for us . Now all we need is some rain.
