The North West Canoe club (NWCC) is located in the city of Mount Isa in North West Queensland, Australia. This is outback country, being some 2000 km from the state capital, Brisbane, and about 900 km from the nearest coastal city of Townsville.
Mount Isa is a mining city which is also starting to discover tourism. It is a competitive sporting city, and the North West canoe club is no different.
Being a little remote we certainly appreciate the paddlers who make the effort to come and see us either at the lake or at the Gregory river. You can always be sure of a warm welcome.
Headquarters is the club house at Transport bay on the shores of Lake Moondarra, 18 km from the centre of the city. The lake is the city’s main water supply and there is over 90 km of shoreline, with many secluded inlets and some top fishing (including Barramundi) to keep you occupied.
Boat storage and boat hire is available to members. If visitors want to have a go at paddling, they can sign up for a trial membership. There are many club boat available for trail including K1, K2,TK1,TK2, SKI, and sit on top plastic boats. Most start with the plastic boats and then progress through to the faster TK1/K1 kayaks.
Portable gas operated BBQ’S and trestle tables are always on site , reedy for use at a moments notice.
Club training days are as follows:
