Six knots for safety on Tinaroo this summer

Image of Lake TinarooFar North Queensland’s long dry spell will restrict recreation activities on Lake Tinaroo with a 6-knot speed limit currently in force.

Six-knot speed limit signs will be set up at boat ramps and camping areas. It’s expected patrols of the lake, campsites and boat ramps will also be increased to advise boaties of the amended speed limit.

MSQ will continue to work with SunWater to monitor levels and review speed limits.

This relates to the area of Noosa Inlet and Noosa Sound from the T Boats Jetty on Gympie Terrace to the mouth of the Noosa River. 

Existing speed signs will be replaced with 6 knot speed signs to alert boaters to these changes. On the spot penalties will apply for those that choose to speed.
