Kayaks and canoes are welcome at South Para, Warren and Bundaleer reservoirs, with dedicated launch areas at each site.

Launch areas are designed for kayaks and canoes and do not allow for other on-water craft such as sailing or rowing boats.

Please minimise human contact with the water in the reservoirs as this helps manage water quality. For this reason, paddle boards are not permitted on our reservoirs. See the full conditions of access for details.

Fishing is available from your kayak or canoe at these three reservoirs, with a current permit.

South Para

Choose your experience with a kayak or canoe - from a short meander to a full day's adventure uncovering the twists and turns of this hidden gem from the water. Suggested routes range from 3.6km to 14km.

During the warmer months when the reservoir's level can be low, bring a trolley to get your kayak or canoe to the water's edge more easily.


With two launch points at Warren, you can easily explore the eastern and western sides of the reservoir. Car parking is available a short walk from the water’s edge at both launch areas.


The launch area at Bundaleer Reservoir is just a five-minute walk from the car park. Bundaleer is great for family paddling so pack a picnic lunch and make day of it.
