Lake Moondarra is situated just 17 kilometers north of the city centre of Mount Isa. Access to the lake is by a sealed road and offers a picturesque shoreline drive.
The lake is one of the most popular places to visit for locals and tourists – spectacular Outback scenery guaranteed! The lake’s safe still water encourages swimming, boating, sailing and canoeing. It has also been stocked with barramundi to lure the anglers for an excellent spot of fishing. Permits are not required to fish at Lake Moondarra, but catch limits do apply.
There are several scenic picnic areas located around the lake with large shady trees and these are some of the best places in Mount Isa to have barbecues.
Lake Moondarra hosts an array of bird life such as pelicans, cormorants, galahs and ducks, just to name a few, giving excellent photographic opportunities. Avid bird watchers can obtain a species list from Outback at Isa.
Opening Times: 6.00am to 10.00pm daily, free entry. Pets are not permitted at the lake and camping is only permitted during the Lake Moondarra Fishing Classic (annually, in October)
