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. Barramundi can be caught all year round, and 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.
