Queens Lake, Mid North Coast NSW Australia
Queens Lake is located approximately 30km (30 mins drive) south west of Port Macquarie on NSW.
The spot works best in a SE or W breeze with runs of around 3 km but also works in, SSW, SW & NE. Dead-south is no good as it is gusty.
The lake averages around 1 – 1.5 metres in depth (with a muddy bottom) and whilst there is a bit of weed in the lake, a weed fin is not entirely necessary. However if you are wanting to do some speed laps at the speed strip over the mud bank on the eastern-side of the lake you will need a weedy for sure.
There are 2 main areas for rigging & launching:
1. White Haven Sailing Club (at the southern end of the lake) – there is no clubhouse but a nice grassy picnic area for rigging. There are oyster beds close to shore as well as moored boats so it takes a little ducking & weaving to get out in to the open water of the lake. It is a good idea to wear booties when launching at this spot due to the oyster shells.
2. Queens Lake Picnic area (at the northern end of the lake) – access via Bobs Creek Road. This is the best spot to launch in a NE breeze.
Where to Stay
As much of the lake is bound by National Park there is no simple camping allowed by the lakeside.
There is however a caravan and camping ground near the sailing club (southern end of the lake) called Laurieton Lakeside Caravan Park which offers caravan & campsites and cabins (and is pet friendly!!)
The caravan park also offers canoe and boat hire.
Other Things To Do
The lake is a great spot for exploring an a canoe of SUP and the fishing on the lake is also quite good.
