Beautiful Beaufort Lake on the Skipton Road (Lawrence Street) about 1.5 km South of Beaufort shops.
Beaufort Lake which is lovely spot for a picnic. There is a caravan park and a football ground.
Beaufort Angling Club works with Fisheries Dept to keep the Beaufort Lake stocked with fish species every year. Regular restockings include Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and more recently Estuary Perch. Along with Redfin there is an abundance of fish varieties in the lake (although current water levels may mean the bird life might have taken a lot of the small fish). Beaufort Angling Club welcomes new members at any time. They meet at the Clubrooms at the Lake on the second Thursday each month August 'til May inclusive. Currently the meetings are at 7pm. Queries can be directed to Carol Hutchings Secretary on 5349 2438.
