Panamuna Outrigger Canoe Club was officially founded in April 1992. We have members and regular training sessions on the Sunshine Coast (Mooloolaba)and Brisbane (Shorncliffe). Panamuna is derived from an Aboriginal word meaning Ocean and we enjoy some of the country's premier venues for the sport, enjoying all weather access to open water or the calm of local rivers and canals.
We are a grass roots club, that prides itself on keeping participation safe and enjoyable; our club fees and structure, reflect an open policy in encouraging individuals from all walks of life to join and enjoy the benefits of this great sport. We encourage both social and competition memberships, in an effort to support the needs of the community.
Panamuna Outrigger Canoe Club members range from young teens to 60 years. If you would like to learn more come along for a paddle. New Members are always welcome.
We have recently introduced a new procedure for the borrowing of club equipment. Please submit your requests to the club committee by clicking on this link to access the form.

Corporate Day 2011
I highly commend the collective efforts of all who spent time helping prior to and on the day. The tireless approach from Mich Scanlan and Ann Lynch and their wonderful merry makers ensured our best and biggest Corporate Day- EVER.Besides the obvious monetary benefits, we gained good community recognition and best of all, new memberships.
