Australian Masters Rowing Championships
- Hosted By Rowing Australian Capital Territory
The Weston Park regatta site on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin is located on a peninsula with one road in and out of the peninsula. Our regatta event site is located at the end of Pescott Lane and this particular section of road will not be open to general traffic during the regatta. Please look for directional signage indicating the boat park, trailer parking and car parking as you enter the peninsula before you reach the Pescott Lane turn-off. Parking marshalls will be on hand for the duration of the regatta to assist with parking.
Please read the Trailer Parking Instructions before you arrive with your boat trailer.
The main spectator area is located in the regatta village adjacent to the end of Pescott Lane, in Weston Park. The village includes food and merchandise outlets and toilets. The best views will be around the Premium Club Tents sites, close to the finish line. There are gentle grassy slopes for spectators, no seating is provided, but picnic rugs and chairs are welcome.
There are a couple of viewing options for spectators around Lake Burley Griffin. These include: parking near the Yarralumla Nursery, where there is also a cafe, and walking down the bike path along the Sri Chinmoy Peace Mile towards Westbourne Woods (another of Canberra’s secret treasures). You will be able to view the race start and glimpses of the race course through the trees - a great spot for taking photos. Alternatively, if you want to avoid the crowds, head to the Lindsay Prior Arboretum at Yarramundi Reach off Lady Denman Drive (please note there are no spectator facilities here), or visit The National Arboretum for a spectacular view of Canberra which also takes in the regatta course.
