Myall Lakes Aquatic Club celebrates 50 years of boating, and some serious stuff too!

Cutting the cake


MYALL Lakes Aquatic Club recently celebrated 50-years since the Myall Lakes Yacht Club was first formed in 1970.

Due to COVID-19, festivities planned for this 50-year milestone in 2020 were necessarily postponed.

Finally, on Saturday 27 March 2021, the 50th anniversary of the Club was celebrated in style at Mumm’s on the Myall. The elegant evening was launched with all guests receiving a commemorative 50th anniversary polo shirt, stubby cooler and burgee, the flag displaying the 50th anniversary emblem of the Club.

Professional photos by Sharon Wedd were taken at the ship’s wheel upon entry. Both shirt and cooler were adorned with aerial photography of the Lakes, plus the shirt back displayed a map of traditional named locations in the Myall Lakes system – both items being valued, historical keepsakes.

The evening was attended by over 85 guests of current and past members, some travelling from remote locations to be part of this significant milestone celebration.

In July 2003, a single club was formed, Myall Lakes Aquatic Club (MLAC), incorporating the aims and objectives of both Myall Lakes Yacht Club and Myall Boating Club, due to the rising costs of public liability insurance and ongoing running costs of running the two clubs.

Myall Lakes Aquatic Club is a social group of boaters who enjoy the magnificent environment of a little known RAMSAR listed aquatic wonderland called Myall Lakes.

Over the Club’s 50 years, many notable achievements have been reached.

They include the establishment of the sewage pump-out boat, Independence, and the sewage pump-out facility at Bombah Point.

Both facilities aid in ensuring the continued preservation of a pristine, RAMSAR listed waterway.

The Club is also committed to maintaining wharves and other local infrastructure needed for safe boating both in the Myall River and on Myall Lakes.

MLAC continues to work closely with NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service to ensure safe boating on the Myall well into the future.
