Capital Paddle boats

The iconic Canberra paddle boats are back, and we couldn’t be more excited! Head down memory lane to Regatta Point jetty to see the crew at Capital Paddle and relive, renew or create for the first time, those iconic paddle boat memories as you peddle your way around the heart of Canberra.

Open from 10am on weekends and 11am on weekdays (weather dependant), hiring a paddleboat is the perfect chance to explore our magical lake while getting a little exercise. If you work up a sweat (which is hard to do as these boats are so easy to use), cool off a little as you pass through the mist from the Captain James Cook Memorial Jet.

Canberra Aqua Park

Welcome to Canberra Aqua Park, Canberra’s newest and most exciting inflatable attraction. If you’ve been looking for a new way to enjoy Lake Burley Griffin, this is it. Grab your friends or family and climb your way over the giant inflatable obstacle course made up of ladders, slides and a giant jumping pillow.

Beat the summer heat, test your skills and have a blast from 10 am every day at the coolest place on the lake.

Go Boats

How does a picnic onboard your own boat as you explore the lake sound? GoBoats offers the perfect opportunity to hang out with friends (or a romantic date anyone?) while taking in the serenity of Canberra as you explore the lake from a different angle. Make yourself a picnic or order some delicious food and beverages from GoBoat Catering and enjoy your spoils as you sit at the 8-person built-in picnic table.

And the best part? You are in control, and no boat licence or previous boating experience is required. Operation is simple, and an ultra-quiet, smooth electric motor power the boats. Serene in more ways than one.

Stand-Up Paddle Board

Take to the waters of Lake Burley Griffin and test your balance on board a Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) Board – don’t worry, these boards are designed for standing and make the experience a whole lot easier than you can imagine. The Paddle Hub has ample SUP boards available for hire however if you prefer a seated watercraft, kayaks are also available for hire.

If you need a lesson, Stand Up Paddle Canberra is a great way to learn. Grab a board, single or double kayak and explore the pristine waters of the lake and take in the stunning views of the surrounding city.

Picnic by the lake

If going for a swim or getting wet does not tickle your fancy, then experience the lake from the shore. Lake Burley Griffin is home to numerous, delightful picnic spots, simply set up anywhere along the lakes edge and you won’t be short of a stunning view.
