AU / New South Wales
Listed By: Create NSW
Location ID: #073-16935
Penrith Whitewater Stadium was the competition venue for the canoe/kayak slalom events during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Located only an hour from Sydney, it is the only man-made whitewater course of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. This location is very film/media-friendly, and can be a very controllable environment in which to stage a stunt sequence. The river flows at 14 cubic metres of water per second. The channel itself is concrete and varies in width from 8 metres to 14 metres. It is 320 metres long, drops 5.5 metres top to bottom and is constructed in a “U” shape. A moveable obstacle system makes it possible to change the whitewater. Penrith Whitewater Stadium is 61km, or 1hr drive from Sydney CBD. Click here for additional info.
