Lake Borumba is one of the few Seqwater lakes which allow jet skiing.
When skiing at Lake Borumba, you must comply with all relevant rules. All activities on Seqwater lakes are covered by the Boating Regulations set by Maritime Safety Queensland (www.msq.qld.gov.au).
Do not launch, retrieve or beach on land around the lake, other than at the signed, designated recreation area.
Keep a safe distance from other people using the lake.
Please be courteous to our neighbours. Much of the land surrounding the lake is National Park and State Forest.
This site is open to the public seven days a week, from:
- 5.30am to 6.30pm (September – April)
- 6.00am to 5.30pm (May – August)
Please bring your own drinking water supplies, as water provided is suitable only for cleaning, washing hands etc.
Wearing a lifejacket can save your life. Even if you're an expert, it is always best to wear a lifejacket while boating. It's a lot harder to put one on in the water during an emergency.
While your safety is important, it is your responsibility. Check the weather before you leave home. Know the speed limits, directional rules, how much distance you need to leave between yourself and other users, and how fast you can go when close to shore or other users.
Jet skiing rules:
- The vessel operator must be appropriately licensed.
- Travel in an anti-clockwise direction (unless otherwise signed).
- Have all the correct safety equipment, and know how to properly use it.
- Always check the area before you start skiing – lake levels are subject to change, and there may be submerged objects.
- For further information on skiing safety, please see Maritime Safety Queensland’s website.
Stay out of exclusion zones. These areas have been established for the safety of all visitors. Designated areas are clearly marked with buoys on the water. Skiing near dam walls, in the spillway, in weirs or fast flowing waterways can be fatal. Don't put your life, or the life of others, at risk.
