Queenstown/Wanaka paddlers


Looking for people to kayak with in the Queenstown area, just arrived from the NI. I know it's rather cold, but if you're keen let me know. 3 to 4+.

Hi Chris,

There is a lot of paddlers around. There's lot in Queenstown, just have to manage to get the same days off as everyone else. And active club scene in Wanaka and Alexandra.

The local club website is www.centralotagowhitewater.co.nz which will be updated soon.

For more up to date information and contacting people look up 'Central Otago Whitewater' or 'Wakatipu Whitewater' on Facebook.

Rivers are pretty low at the moment (and cold), but still a few folks getting out on the Roaring Meg through winter. Come spring there is lots of options; Manuherikia, Young, Routeburn, Shotover, Nevis, Lochy, Rees, Matakitaki, Kawarau....
