If you are looking for a good family activity or team building event, then White Water rafting at Penrith is definitely worth considering. The man made facility built for the 2000 Olympics gives you all the thrills of whiter water rafting without the trek to Cairns or the long paddles between rapids on a conventional river. You get a full... More

Really enjoyed this. It's man made so very safe. Staff very polite and safety is their main priority. Good value for money. Was very tired after it but that's all part of it. Great fun

The instructiors were very helpful and ensured everyone understood all the rules. We also had young children and family who came to watch, there was pleanty of shade and... More

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.
