Looking for something to do these school holidays? Australis has a canoe and kayak hire based inside the beautiful Killalea State Park. [Check out the photos on our Facebook Page]
Entrance to the park is via Killalea Drive, just a short 5min drive off the Princes Highway Dunmore. Parking is free and we are located on the river at the spectacular Minnamurra Spit, which is an easy 15min easy walk from the car park.
Hours of operation through the School holidays will be 8am to 4pm Thursday to Tuesday.
Hire is also available from the Australis Factory but you need to take your craft away to the location you are going to paddle. This way you can hire for a whole day, a weekend, a week or longer - the choice is yours!
Australis is now stocking the Kanulock Key Vault - ideal for securing your car keys when you are at the beach or on the water. Modern car keys and the beach do not go well together so people are forced to hide their keys while enjoying the beach. Now you can safely lock your electronic keys to your car while you enjoy the water and know they are safe from thieves, sand and water.
As further good news Australis has 2 Key Vaults to give away. Go to the Australis Facebook Page, "like and share" to go into the draw for this great prize.
An exciting day! You can now easily get your Manual and Automatic Inflatable PFDs serviced through our factory at Bellambi. This is a weekly service and it is as easy as dropping your jacket in to us - we look after the rest.
All jackets are serviced by an accredited service provider and will be returned to you with the inspection certificate required by Maritime authorities.
Remember ALL INFLATABLE PFDs need to be inspected every 12 months to comply with safety regulations.
After many requests from those who love fishing from bigger boats, Australis is also re-releasing the Live Bait Tank and the Berley Bucket.
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/etc 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.
Are you starting to melt with the continuing hot weather? For a quick cool down check out the Australis Canoes Facebook page to see how an Ocky handles a white Christmas in America. It's not what we imagined when we designed the Ocky but just goes to show how versatile and durable Australis products are.

Railblaza has released a Universal Kayak Motor Mount that is easy to attach to most kayaks or sit-on-tops. It combines the flexibility of Railblaza mounts with some clever design, delivering a mounting bracket for electric outboards and even petrol outboards up to 2.5HP. This Motor Bracket will fit almost all models of kayak and is the simplest way to attach a trolling motor to your Kayak.
If you need added stability, the Double Outrigger Kit designed for the Australis Squid may be able to be adapted for your sit-on-top.
