Lake Awoonga

Benaraby, Gladstone Area

Whether 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. If you happen to reel in a Mangrove Jack consider yourself lucky as they're a rare find.

There are a range of ways to experience this environmental gem just 30 kilometres from Gladstone, bring your own boat, or hire a boat or Kayak from Lake Awoonga Boating and Leisure Hire, day cruise or just make the most of the natural surrounds by taking a walk, a dip or lazing under the shade of the trees.

Spectacular lake and mountain views, picturesque waterfalls, walking paths, barbecue area and playground are all part of what's on offer.

Ornithologists, twitchers and birders can look out for the Southern Squatter Pigeon and the Red Goshawk (listed as having conservation significance) and is one of the largest and important near-coast bird refuges in South East Queensland.

This area is home to a thriving array of native animals, both by day and night like the Whiptail or pretty-face wallaby, Yellow-Bellied Glider or Grey-headed Flying Fox. You might even spot a Koala so look up!
