CHAMPION LAKES REGATTA CENTRE
Champion Lakes Regatta Centre (generally referred to as Champion Lakes) is an aquatic sporting facility south of Perth, Western Australia in the suburb of Champion Lakes. It is an international standard facility for rowing and includes an 8-lane 2,000-metre buoyed course for competition and includes a designated warm up area.
It was officially opened on 30 January 2009 and is currently owned by VenuesWest, but also includes buildings and infrastructure on the island owned by Rowing WA and the Making Waves program which is also run from this facility. There are 20 rowing regattas run at the venue per year, by Rowing WA, between January and July with rowers travelling across the state to compete.
The Australian Masters Rowing Championships was held in 2019 and the last Australian Rowing Championships was held there in 2011.
Champion Lakes Regatta Centre is situated just north of the City of Armadale and is 20 minutes south of Perth International Airport and 30 minutes from Perth Central Business District.
The lake runs adjacent to the Tonkin Highway / State Route 4, which runs directly from the airport. This highway can be used to access the CBD, as well as Orrong Road / State Route 8 which also takes you into the city.
