Lakes and Waterfalls, Natural Attractions
Just one hour’s drive from the centre of Brisbane, Lake Maroon is located in the heart of the Scenic Rim, Boonah. Lake Maroon is ideal for camping and one of Queensland’s most popular places for sailing, fishing, water skiing, parasailing and paddle boating.
The Lake Maroon recreation area is located next to the dam wall, off Maroon Dam Road, and the boat ramp is opposite, off Slater Park Road. The following activities are available: barbecuing and picnicking, boating (powered and non-powered), camping (in designated areas), canoeing and kayaking, fishing, jet skiing and waterskiing, and sailing.
