The ultimate nature-lovers & water-sport enthusiast's day ou
Located in the natural wonderland of Bournda National Park, Wallagoot Lake is the heart of this National Park and is a playground for watersport enthusiasts and nature-lovers alike with sailing, paddling, fishing and birdwatching making up some of the activities to enjoy at this wonderful lake.
Wallagoot Lake is located halfway between Merimbula and Tathra and this pristine coastal lagoon Lake has plenty to offer to satisfy all ages and interests. It also has an inlet to the sea (it has been closed for over a decade due to the onset of drought) which makes the lake level high, making it the perfect spot to enjoy water-based and boating activities.
You can enjoy setting up a picnic on the shores of the lake and watch the day go by as you sit back and just relax!
The little ones will love splashing around or enjoying a swim in the protected waters. For something a little more adventurous, you can launch your vessel at the boat ramp and glide across the water discovering the lake's beauty.
This valuable habitat will also have bird-watching enthusiasts having the time of their lives with many birdwatching opportunities as the lake is home to waterfowls, threatened species like the adorable little tern and fairy tern nesting on the foreshores during springtime or foraging during the summer season.
