Welcome to the Over 45 Social Canoe Club


The club caters for those who enjoy an active sociable lifestyle. Members paddle weekly on Friday mornings on the Swan or Canning Rivers with occasional ocean paddles at Rockingham, Shoalwater Bay or Hillarys.


There are annual week-long camps at Rottnest Island in autumn and near Albany, Walpole or Augusta by rotation, in spring. There are also annual weekend camps at Moore River and Mandurah.


 Social events include travel nights where members talk about their trips and sharing meals at restaurants. On two Fridays a year members do not paddle but celebrate the club's anniversary and Christmas.

A strong emphasis of the club is safety, with special reference to equipment, teamwork, structured paddling formats and safety briefings.
