The Whitewater Stadium do vouchers and I bought my godson one for last Christmas, yesterday he used it and had a wonderful time. He has done whitewater rafting before, and loves the water, but it did stretch his strength to the limit. As he has done since he was a tiny boy, despite always being told not to fall in... More

Once the safety talk is over, it's on to the flat water for some team work practice, then away you go! Up the ramp, into the whitewater. It's a constant and controlled flow so there isn't bug variation each time you return here, but it's a great day out for family groups, work groups or bunches of friends.

I enjoyed watching everyone rafting. It is beautiful location, but I feel more protection from the sun would be good. There is a cafe here but we didn't purchase from here. Would like to return soon.

fantastic thing to do - not mentioned on the website but you get to go round the course about 7 times. You will get very wet and probably fall out of the boat at least once but its safe and fun. The staff are really good and try hard to make this an exhilarating experience

In the safety briefing they tell you that rafting is dangerous and you MAY fall out. What they don't tell you is that they deliberately tip the raft over in the rapids and everyone falls out! First time seemed to be deliberate but I thought it must have just been an accident. After everyone got back in the raft on... More

Booked into the Penrith Whitewater Rafting with family. What a fantastic experience. Expect to get wet. You might also fall in and loose a bit of skin - we did. What a great day. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended.

Nice park area not far from Penrith, the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. It is hard work or you can take a small group trip and let the others do all the work, but be prepared to go home wet and tired. There are facilities tompurchase food and drinks and tables chairs and shade etc, makes a nice family... More

We went to show an exchange student this venue. We walked the course. It was great to watch rookies and pros going down the Rapids. There is a cafe facility available for snacks and lunch. Free parking and entry. Next time it might be nice to actively participate :)
