Lake Ainsworth

Lake Ainsworth, a tea-tree stained dunal lake, is very popular with locals and visitors. The lake is located at the northern end of Pacific Parade and is complemented by wonderful barbecue and picnic facilities.

It's an exhilarating experience to swim between the salty ocean and the fresh water lake. It's also suitable for stand-up paddle boards, kayaking and canoeing.

The recreation facilities at the lake now include pathways, new barbecues, picnic tables and formalised parking.

The lake can be affected by blue green algae at times. Be sure to check the website for official advice related to the blue green algae status to ensure it is safe to undertake water activities prior to planning a visit.
