Free Entry 

Located 30 kilometres from Gladstone, Lake Awoonga boasts excellent recreation facilities and spectacular lake and mountain views.

Enthusiastic anglers come to Lake Awoonga to catch the famed barramundi, of which almost 4 million have been released. The largest caught in April 2007 and weighing in at a hefty 33.3 kilograms! The great news is that you can fish for barramundi all year round! Fingerlings are released each year, including barramundi, mullet and mangrove jack. It is believed that Lake Awoonga is the highest stocked lake in Australia for Mangrove Jack.

Alternatively, hire a houseboat or kayak, take a scenic trip on a seaplane, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife. Feathered, furry or scaled, Lake Awoonga is home to a thriving array of animals, many of which are of conservation significance.
