Australian Canoeing (AC) is the governing body for the sport of canoeing and kayaking in Australia.


The body was founded in Bexley, New South Wales on 10 September 1949 as the Australian Canoe Federation and affiliated with the International Canoe Federation in 1951.[1] In 1996, the Australian Canoe Federation at its Annual General Meeting adopted a new Constitution and changed the name of the association to Australian Canoeing Inc.[2]
