Lake Cootharaba

Lake Cootharaba is a popular spot for sailing and Boreen Point in home to the Lake Cootharaba Sailing Club. A great place to visit and stay, the camping ground at Boreen Point.

This place is good for kids and parents alike. Children can frolic in the shallow waters of the lake for hours and parents don't have to be in the water with them the whole time. Hire a catamaran or a canoe. There's the council campground at Boreen Point (just a stroll to the brilliant Apollonian Hotel) or large groups will always find room at nearby Elanda Point. Intrepid campers can load up their canoes with all the necessary gear and paddle way up the Noosa River to the everglades. Here, the water is like a black mirror and you can book private riverfront camp sites via the EPA.
Lake Cootharaba is about 10 kms long and 5 kms wide with an average depth of about 1.5 metres and is part of the Noosa River system and the Great Sandy Region.
