Lake Maroon Water Skiing
Lake Maroon is probably one of the best water-skiing lakes in Queensland. The Lake is deep and clear, very safe and not crowded. Almost all of the dam’s surface area is ski-able and free from obstructions. The area used by skiers is quite separate to the area used by fishermen, so less there is conflict of use. Due to the surrounding mountains the dam is not usually affected by wind, deep enough that is doesn't chop up easily and can be skied all day.
Private Lake Access
We have our own private access to the lake were you can launch a boat in a good deep launching area. You can set up a day shelter right beside the waters edge. It is very popular with water skiing groups. Note that the boat launch area is not a concrete boat ramp and in wet weather we reserve the right to close the area if heavy rain makes the grass boggy. This area is for Lake Maroon Holiday Park guests only, so you won’t be crowded out along the foreshore.
No Permits Required
There are no special permits required to use the Lake, and Jet Skis are permitted. However vessels must be registered and the driver appropriately licensed. The direction of travel is anti-clockwise direction and skiing is prohibited within 30 metres of anchored vessels, swimmers and boat ramps. There are also a series of buoys about 50 metres from the dam wall that indicate a safety ‘No Go Zone’.
