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

History[edit]

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]
