Paddle Queensland exists to:

To promote, support and coordinate all levels and all types of paddlesport in Queensland


Paddle Queensland supports a variety different types of paddlesport in Qld. The types of paddlesport are also know as disciplines. 

With a variety of disciplines to choose from there really is something for everyone.

These are made up of traditional paddlesport disciplines like Canoe Sprint, Canoe Marathon, Canoe Polo and Sea Kayaking but we also recognise Associate Disciplines like Outrigger Canoe or Stand up Paddling. Here we work with other governing bodies to promote these sports.


All of our disciplines have a representative or if appropriate a technical committee to that acts as a voice for that discipline.

There are two pathways through our disciplines:

Recreational Pathway

Olympic and Paralympic Pathway

Curtis McGrath canoe sprints worlds

 Both pathways lead to the enjoyment that we all receive from our fantastic sport.
