Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre

Just one hour south of the Gold Coast on NSW’s Far North Coast, Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre provides a range of services, facilities and accommodation options for school camps, family camps, kids’ camps, sporting events, weddings, weekend getaways, community programs and more.


Heavy rain on the far north coast has caused water levels on Lake Ainsworth to rise. This has impacted operations at Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre and forced the facility to close.

The Centre was operating as a flood operations centre and was closed to visitors.

Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre will re-open when water levels on the Lake subside and the facility is safe to operate.

Set on 118 hectares of coastal land minutes from National Parks and rainforests, Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre is blessed by water – the rugged Lennox Head coastline at its door and the reflective Lake Ainsworth in its midst. There are also tennis courts, a swimming pool and private beach access.

“This stay was even more enjoyable than the first, which is hard to imagine. We are coming home with the opinion it was our best trip ever, and we have stayed at various venues over the past 16 years.”
