A lovely Water sporting area in Sydney

Postby Ray1 » Tue Mar 14, 2017 2:38 pm

So, we enjoyed our weekends at Penrith Whitewater which is only less than an hour from Penrith right at the foot hills of my neighboring Blue Mountains. It was basically built for the water sports, especially canoe/kayak during 2000 Olympic Games held in Sydney. As they say it is one of its own kind (man-made) whitewater river rafting area. I have visited many whitewater river rafting areas in Himalayan regions but Penrith white water is a different experience.

Even I have visited white water rafting in the Himalayas but if you say that Penrith is better then I can truly imagine what bliss it would be there. I fall in love with those of Himalayas and now I'm dying to visit the Penrith whitewater.

@ DR KOKIL AGARWAL I guess you had Rishikesh water rafting area in your mind which is close to my home back in my country. We go their often and enjoy that lovey white water rafting area which is really exciting and to top it all the experience of its rugged and uneven very fast flow of water since it is just on the foothills of Himalayas. That part of the River Ganges probably has the most beautiful scenes on offer for visitors.

I would like a visit to the Penrith for the Whitewater if I make it that location some day. Before now I can argue Himalayas was the main place for the attraction in sporting of this kind. Just getting to know about the beautiful place at the Penrith.

Actually I love both Himalayas in India and Blue Mountains in Australia on equal basis although the two places are entirely different and on different altitude. Himalaya is spread in a wide area and one of the highest mountains in the world so it has various kinds of walking, trekking and sports facilities there. I am living in the Blue Mountains area for a long time so I have developed a kind of love for this region too.
