Australis sit-on-top kayaks are designed by paddlers so that they perform on the water. We can explain the design features that make this possible but you will really notice the difference when you try an Australis kayak on the water. That is why we encourage you to try before you buy with a free test paddle or to hire if you want to give it a more thorough testing. It is also why we have so many customers coming in and telling us they want to buy an Ocky / Foxx / Squid / Lynxx / Cuttlefish because they have just tried one that belonged to a friend or someone they met on holidays. Thank you to everyone who is spreading the good news about how great it is to be able to buy quality Australian Made Australis kayaks.
Only a few days until Father's Day and we have a great selection of gift ideas to suit every budget. If a kayak or canoe is out of your price range, why not look at the wide choice of accessories we have on offer. The scroll bar above has lots of ideas - from a Pealess whistle for only $3 up to a Double Outrigger Kit to attach to your favourite man's Bushranger Canoe. One new item to check out is the Navilight 360 2NM if your man is likely to paddle early or late - a super bright 16LED light which is magnetic and floats! More options can be found under the Accessories tag on the website. Go on - spoil your man! You know he is worth it!
With Easter and the school holidays approaching it is a great time for the whole family to spend time doing things together that they may not have tried before.
What could be more fun than hiring a canoe or kayak and taking advantage of the beautiful sunny days we are enjoying now? Day hire (24hours) from Australis starts at $60 for a single sit-on-top kayak and $80 for a canoe or double sit-on-top. Weekend hire rates (3 days) are $90 and $140, so for a small cost you can have lots of water-based fun. For more detailed information click here to see our hire rates.
Remember, if you decide kayaking is too much fun for just the holidays and you decide to buy, when you return the craft you can ask to use the hire cost as your deposit on a brand new Australis kayak or canoe! [Hire is available from the Australis Factory and you need to take it away to the location you are going to paddle.]
Australis has some Christmas gift ideas to help you with those last minute buys - some new, some that are always popular, some unusual, some mundane. Gifts for family and friends or treat youself.
Summer is here so it's only 3 weeks until Christmas, and time is running out to have your special canoe and kayak orders manufactured in time to place under the tree. However the good news is that we still have a wide range of colour choices available for immediate pick-up or delivery and we can easily add a Fishing Package or other accessories to customise your canoe or kayak.
Australis now has the new Inflatable Fisher PFD vest from Ultra in stock. This inflatable has been designed specifically for fishermen with a comfortable air-mesh lining, 3 gusseted pockets that have internal organisers & outer mesh pouches, a lash tab for Epirb, knife or light, a front-opening zip and adjustable side-tabs for ease of fitting.
Don't forget Australis also stocks the Crewfit 165N Sport manual inflatable life jacket that offers safe, stylish, comfortable and affordable solutions for the everyday recreational kayaker, canoeist or boater and has the essential features to ensure the recreational user remains safe when out on the water.
Remember all inflatable PFDs need to be inspected every 12 months to comply with safety regulations.
Your Manual and Automatic Inflatable PFDs can be serviced through our factory at Bellambi. This is a weekly service and involves dropping your jacket in to us. Your jacket will be serviced by an accredited service provider and will be returned to you with the inspection certificate required by Maritime authorities
