Natureline Canoes and Kayaks are available in Mackay from Kayaksnthings, Your local Mackay retailer.

Natureline Australia is a manufacturer of composite canoes and kayaks. Composite meaning the product is made from Fibreglass. The company issituated on the southern bank of the Brisbane River in Murarrie, Queensland. Being an Australian manufacturer and more importantly Queensland makes it even easier for Kayaksnthings to recommend this product. Also being quality local product we can ask for your new canoe or kayak to be custom made with the colours and extras you want added.

Natureline the company changed owner in April 2017 after from veteran boat builder Kerry Richards who founded the company 30 years ago. The plan is to keep the name alive for at least another 30 years.

The new crew comprises two paddling partners, a team of obsessive composite technicians and one dog. Dan has an engineering background and loves nothing more than a spontaneous canoe trip down a long river with his mind always on creating a better craft and getting more people on the water. Cranston has a mechanical background with a design flair and takes great pride in the quality of the craft Natureline produces and enjoys seeing happy customers taking their new or repaired pride and joy away to get out on the water.

Dan and Richard love what they do and why they do it, and love nothing more than seeing one of their canoes or kayaks on the water.
