Lakes and Waterfalls, Natural Attractions
Just one hour’s drive from Brisbane, Lake Maroon is located in the heart of the beautiful Scenic Rim.
Lake Maroon is ideal for camping and one of Queensland’s most popular lakes 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, where visitors can barbecue and picnic, and go boating (powered and non-powered), camping (in designated areas), canoeing and kayaking, fishing, jet skiing and waterskiing, or sailing.
For more information visit the nearby Boonah Visitor Information Centre.

We are proud of our diverse communities within the region. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the many lands within the Scenic Rim - the Mununjali in the Centre, the Wangerriburra to the East, the Ugarapul to the West, and all those of the Yugambeh and Jagera language groups. We pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
