The Browns River at Kingston is world famous for its still brown water, its superb examples of aquatic weeds and a plethora of brown ducks. But what really puts the Browns river on the international sporting venue map, is the fortnightly Browns Races conducted by the DCC through the daylight savings months. Frequented by wildwater racing paddlers, sea kayakers, slalom paddlers, multi-sports paddlers, ocean sk
i racers, and even stand up paddle boarders, this handicapped race leads the world in inclusive racing. The handicap makes for an exciting finish whilst ensuring that all paddlers have equal access to post race BBQ refreshments.
The Browns River is a protected waterway and is also frequently used for introductory programs like the paddle passport program being run by the DCC.
