The banks of Coonemia Creek make a peaceful and tranquil spot to just sit and watch the world go by. When Lake Wollumboola is full and the creek is high, it’s also a perfect spot from which to launch and paddle a kayak or canoe from the small timber launching ramp, which can also accommodate small motorised trailer boats.
Enjoy swimming, kayaking or fishing surrounded by undisturbed forest vegetation. Birdwatchers should bring their binoculars to better admire the azure kingfishers that like to perch on the branches of the creek banks, as well as several other species of waterbirds that call the area home, including pelicans and cormorants.
Activities: paddling, sailing and boating, fishing, birdwatching, picnics and barbecues
