There are quite a few paddling clubs that operate out of Blackwattlle Bay – kayaks, dragon boats, outrigger canoes, rowing boats and so on. It’s a great access point from a small inner west suburb that enables you to easily access to main harbour area and beyond.

I’ve been part of the Sydney University Canoe Club for around 5 years. They operate out of the Sydney University Women’s Rowing Club shed at the bottom of Ferry Road, and in terms of access, the shed is fantastic – they only things to negotiated are the two small steps at the bottom of the ramp, and the steep angle of the ramp in low tide!
