Lake Kawana

lake kawana

A choice of active or leisurely energy

The atmosphere at Lake Kawana is shaped by the local, national and international activities that take place in and around the water. The 2000 metre buoyed course is perfect for flat water competitions. Watching from the lake foreshore or competing yourself, it is the Sunshine Coast weather that gives Lake Kawana its extra appeal.

 

Row, kayak or canoe

When the energetic paddling sports take to the water they are sure to attract a crowd. Eight canoe and kayak lanes or seven rowing lanes will suit the local and national paddlers for competitions, training and warm-ups.

 

Numerous uses

Aside from the paddlers racing through the water, Lake Kawana hosts triathlons, model boat championships, dragon boat racing, surf ski and paddles, stand up paddle boards, open water swimming and much more. Visiting the lake is a pleasurable experience, the sound of water, the picturesque pine trees and the comfortable green grass. Take a seat on a shaded bench and enjoy the view.

 

Lakeside leisure

Eastbank at Lake Kawana is a constant source motivation for locals and guests. Calm waters of the lake inspire you to relax with Tai Chi on the grassy lakeside or take a stroll along the path. Bring a picnic or use the BBQ facilities for a day out with the family. Parking at Lake Kawana is easy, it’s right next to the lake.
