Capital Paddle

Take a leisurely paddle around Lake Burley Griffin.

Head down to Regatta Point at Lake Burley Griffin on a weekend to rent a paddleboat with Capital Paddle and explore the sights surrounding the lake via the water. As you pump those legs and take in the view, you may even pass a swan or two.

Back in the 90s, these boats were the activity of choice for tourists wishing to explore the city from a different angle — and, due to popular demand, were recently reintroduced for those looking for a little dose of nostalgia.

A boat can be rented for $25 for 30 minutes or $35 for a full hour and fits two, so it's perfect for a romantic date or paddle with a mate. The availability of the boats depends on the weather, so make sure to head down when the sun is out in full force.
