4pm – IWRA Lake Burrendong Classic
There’s something fishy going on here. Whether you’re eating fish on Good Friday or you just crave crowds, excitement, camping and fishing, you’ll be at the not for profit Inland Waterways Rejuvenation Association Lake Burrendong Classic.
Last year’s event attracted 1305 competitors from as far as New Zealand; 3000 people camped and 108 businesses gave sponsorship support with over $50,000 in prizes.
It’s a family event so bring a line for the little tykes.
The three-day event from Friday to Sunday is run by volunteers and 100 per cent of proceeds go into making the inland waterways healthier. If you’re just going for a day drive and a stick-beak, entry into the Lake Burrendong State Park is $12 per vehicle.
