The Venue

In 2017 the Western Region Regatta will be held at Lake Canobolas, 7km to the West of Orange. It is the ‘home’ of Colour City Dragon Boat Club and Pinnacle Dragons DA Orange.

Located at the foot of Mt Canobolas the Lake is a large, tranquil stretch of water that provides a range of activities with the changing seasons. The Lake is fed by Molong Creek whose waters flow from melting snow and rain that falls on Mt Canobolas and the surrounding Towac Valley.


Scattered around the Lake are many picnic shelters with tables and free electric or gas barbecues. These are often used by the Orange based clubs for a post training ‘sausage sizzle’, especially on a Saturday morning. We also frequent The Lakehouse for coffee and treats.
