Can you travel across Lake Burley Griffin on a rainbow?

Or, perhaps, race through the water that connects the capital’s North and South while engaged in spotto to name the national Cultural Icons that line its shores?

And while you’re at it, wonder how many coins lie at the bottom, thrown by generations of children and adults alike to make their wishes come true?


This summer you can do all that and more with the newly painted Lake Burley Griffin paddle boats officially launched on Wednesday 2 November 2022.

The ever-popular paddle boats have been repainted to reflect our culture and history in a fun and creative way.
