Welcome to Kayaks Australia
Kayaks Australia is a retail paddling business, owned and operated by Denise Williams, who is a University Qualified Exercise and Rehabilitation Consultant with over 30 years of on-the-water paddling experience.
Formerly situated at Taren Point, in the Sutherland Shire (southern suburbs of Sydney), Kayaks Australia sell a wide range of
sea kayaks and
sit-on kayaks from the leading designers and manufacturers in Australia and New Zealand.
We proudly support companies that are still making products in Australia and New Zealand (keeping jobs and money here), as we have found
that these products are equal to (and in most cases better than) a lot of the imported brands with regard to quality and performance on the water.

Kayaks Australia - About Us
In December 2010, after 8 years, we closed our huge kayak showroom in Taren Point for a tree change.
Denise and Troy are moving to country NSW to escape the rat-race of city life and so Troy can return to his farming roots.
Kayaks Australia have not been "bought out" or "taken over".
We have simply closed our showroom at Taren Point, and are now selling exclusively over the internet.
Going forward, Kayaks Australia will continue to operate, as we will be maintaining relationships with all our current suppliers, meaning
you are still able to purchase top quality kayaking accessories and craft through our website.
Ordering is as simple as sending an email, and we have a number of payment options available.
Our phone number remains as (02) 9531 7800 and this now diverts to a mobile phone. If we are not able to answer your call immediately,
please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
We would like to thank all the people (customers and suppliers) who have helped us build Kayaks Australia into the successful business
that it is today, and look forward to continuing to supply the top quality advice, products and service that Kayaks Australia is renowned for.

A great place to go paddling!
We spent the Easter break in Mallacoota VIC, about an hour past Eden, just over the NSW/VIC border... What a great place for kayaking!.
There is an extensive lake system that you can explore, or if you prefer something with a bit more adventure, head out for an open water paddle or a bash in the surf.
In Mallacoota, we choose to stay at the Mallacoota Hotel Motel, as it is a one-stop-shop for accommodation, meals and drinks.
Kayaking Clubs - Are you looking for people to go paddling with?
Canoe and kayak clubs are a great place to start when looking for people to go paddling with.
The benefits that you receive as a member of a club (insurance coverage, advice and guidance from paddlers with more experience than you, as well as skill development days), far outweigh the costs of joining these clubs.
There are clubs all over Australia, and in the southern Sydney area, we are particularly lucky to have some specialist clubs (racing, white water, sea kayaking), as well as
groups that are just interested in recreational paddling.
