Rowing Tasmania will be holding the Tasmanian Schools Rowing Championships at Lake Barrington International. For further information, check out Rowing Tasmania's website.
Lake Barrington is situated in the Forth River valley, about 40km south of Devonport.
The lake is approximately 30 metres deep and is well protected from the prevailing North Westerly winds.
The natural amphitheatre created by the surrounding hills is enhanced by a gentle sloping spectator area, which provides the public with an excellent view of the full 2000 metre 8 lane buoyed course.
A feature of the venue is the clean air, water and pristine aesthetically pleasing environment. The course and associated facilities has been developed with a recognition and respect for the surrounding natural environment. The land-based development, as to the location and selection of building material, has been designed to complement the eye catching and peaceful surrounds.
Lake Barrington has been acclaimed by interstate and overseas visitors as the finest natural rowing and centre in Australia, and of the same standard as the hitherto best course at, Rotsee in Switzerland. Lake Barrington is within easy driving distance of world-class tourist attractions such as Cradle Mountain.
The site has permanent office facilities, kiosk, barbecue centre, first aid room, judges and media tower, boatsheds and separate toilet/shower facilities for competitors and for the public.Visit Website
