Whilst staying in Maleny (Sunshine Coast hinterland), we decided to go kayaking on Lake Baroon. Otherwise known as Baroon Pocket dam.
Jacob and I took the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak, with Mia in the middle, taking it easy under the umbrella. It was quite a hot day, so she appreciated the shade.
We launched at the boat ramp, which is at the southern end of the lake. There is parking, picnic tables, a swimming area and toilets available.
Lake Baroon is quite small, and there was a picnic area across the other side near the dam wall, so we decided to head over there.
The new AirVolution kayak is full drop-stitch, so the rigidity is excellent, even with a grandson sitting in the cockpit.
Overall, it was a wonderful day, and I would DEFINITELY recommend kayaking at Lake Baroon.
The scenery is beautiful, the facilities are excellent and it felt very private, given that it’s a small lake and we were the only ones on it!

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak is perfect for us because:
- It’s easy to paddle straight as it has an Aluminum Rib Frame Design.
- It has the best speed, tracking and stability.
- It has plenty of leg room with a capacity of 249kg.
- The high-backed seat with lumbar support is very comfortable and supportive
- It’s very durable – I didn’t have to worry about submerged obstacles in creeks
- It’s quick and easy to set-up and pack away.
- It has room for the kids.
