Due to the high algae levels which are currently present, the Lake has been closed temporarily. For further updates regarding the reopening, please contact Ballina Shire Council.
Lake Ainsworth, a tea-tree stained dunal lake, is very popular with locals and visitors. The lake is located at the northern end of Pacific Parade and is complemented by wonderful barbecue and picnic facilities. It’s an exhilarating experience to swim between the salty ocean and the fresh water lake. It’s also suitable for stand-up paddle boards, kayaking and canoeing.
