Lake Connewarre

Lake Connewarre is a large estuarine shallow lake near the mouth of the Barwon River near Geelong. To get to the best sailing area at Connewarre, Follow the signs to Queenscliff through Geelong , go through Leopold and take a right turn about 400 metres after the 70 km/h zone ends. Careful here as there is a sign marking the road which says Lake Connewarre but it is hard to see until you are right upon it! Take this road right to the end and start sailing. This spot provides excellent flat water slalom in the prevailing SW-W winds that we experience in Victoria. Not worth the visit if the wind is northerly or easterly. Closest shops are West Coast Water Sports in Bellarine St., Geelong and Strapper in Torquay.
