Lake Awoonga

Back on the highway, if you’re looking for a place to splash, fish or relax, Lake Awoonga is a nature lover’s paradise.

The lake is stocked with barra, saratoga and sea mullet and has earned a reputation as one the best impound freshwater fishing spots in Australia. Not a keen angler? Then slip into the cool waters for a relaxing dip, leisurely kayak or try your hand at stand up paddle boarding. Or why not pull on some walking shoes and explore the lake’s naturally sculpted landscape teeming with a wondrous array of plants, animals and birds.

There are also BBQ areas waiting at the ready, so pack a picnic and enjoy lunch with a view.
