Lake Centenary


 Lake Centenary, just north of the town, is a man-made centre for aquatic enthusiasts; whether it is power boating, water skiing, sailing, canoeing, using the paddle boats, or just swimming.

The Lake Centenary precinct includes a playground, self-weighted gym equipment and landscaped picnic facilities, making it an ideal venue for a fun day out.

For the safety of all, boat operators are reminded to be considerate and mindful of the rules and regulations governing the water. Adhering to the guidelines will help ensure a safe summer. A boom gate is in operation at the lake for entry to the boat ramp, to be used only by vehicles with a boat trailer.

Passes for access to the boat launch area are available from the Caltex Service Station in Hoskins Street. A day pass costs $15, plus $35 bond, redeemable on return of the gate card; while a 12 month pass costs $50. A three year pass is also available for $120.00. The operating rules of Lake Centenary’s waterways are signposted at the boat ramp, and all users are urged to make themselves aware of the operating rules to ensure they are compliant.

We remind users of Lake Centenary that there is a NO GLASS policy and a NO FIRES policy, all of which carry a $550.00 infringement notice.

DOGS are to be kept on a leash when walking around the lake apart from the dedicated leash free area.

Various events, or environmental factors, may affect the status of the lake. Users are encouraged to check regularly for upcoming events. You keep also find further information and updates on the Lake Centenary Facebook page.
