Lake Burley Griffin - West Basin
Lake Burley Griffin is a popular waterway at the centre of Canberra. The Lake is surrounded by quality parklands and public places. Special conditions apply to the use of Lake Burley Griffin that are outlined in the National Capital Authority's Lake Burley Griffin Management Plan. In appraising events proposed on the Lake special consideration will also be given to routine lake recreational uses such as sailing, rowing, fishing and swimming, ferry boat operations, environmental impacts, and to routine lake maintenance. Regular water quality testing undertaken by the Authority can return results that may necessitate lake closures and the cancellation of events on the Lake. Proponents of events on the Lake are advised to take such issues into their considerations.
