Lake Burley Griffin (the Lake) is the setting for many water based activities. Thousands of people every year use the Lake for peaceful recreation or active, competitive sporting events. Some of these activities are part of the Lake User Groups (LUG).

The NCA facilitates the Lake User Group (LUG) which meets quarterly. Formed in 2004, LUG enables the communication of Lake matters, events and management issues to those user groups and individuals who may be affected by these. Many LUG members are membership based organisations, peak sporting bodies and commercial operators.

If you have ever thought about joining a Lake User Group, but did not know what is out there, here is a list of organised groups which use the Lake in various ways.
