Currimundi Lake Canoe Trail provides a safe, sheltered 6km paddle through urban and bushland areas fringed with paperbarks and she-oaks. The creek provides a peaceful haven for wildlife and canoeists.
Included in the canoe trail brochure:
- a map of the canoe, walking and cycling trails
- pathways, including coastal pathways, property boundaries and the beach
- park areas and facilities.
Hard copies of the canoe trail map and ecosystem brochure (an ecosystem is a group of plants and animals working with air, water and soil) are available through visitor information centres or council customer service centres.
Currimundi Lake Canoe Trail is suitable for beginners and family groups because it is easy to find your way through the sheltered waters. It offers:
- a new view of the natural beauty of Currimundi Lake
- a low cost activity
- a chance to discover and identify at close range
Convenient canoe resting places are marked on the brochure. To help keep the area beautiful and safe, visitors are asked to abide by a few simple rules.
When visiting our reserves remember:
- all native wildlife and plants in our reserves are protected
- do not feed wildlife
- stay on the formal paths around the lake edge
- dispose of rubbish in the bins provided or take it home with you for disposal
- dogs are welcome in the reserves but should be on a leash
- cyclists should allow adequate space for people walking along the paths in the area
- canoes and other watercraft should be launched from the designated canoe facilities, other watercraft should be launched from the boat ramps provided
- use only designated resting stops as use of other areas can cause bank erosion
- take care and supervise children when using our canoe and lakeside paths.
