Lake Ninan Information
As early as the 1910s, Reverend Millward's boat was a popular vehicle for sailing on Lake Ninan. During 1910 and 1911, the water supply in the developing town of Wongan Hills was very short, and the lake's supply was used for the towns people and the railways to keep the steam trains running. Camels which were in the region doing survey work ahead of the railway construction, carted water from Lake Ninan. They were in service for five months carting water between Goomalling and Mullewa. The second annual picnic of the Progress Association, in 1912, was held at Lake Ninan.
Wongan Hills housewives often came to Lake Ninan to do the washing on the banks of the lake. The school was located in this vicinity. During the early 1930s, the lake was a very popular weekend resort with swimming and boating activities. The Boy Scouts Association had a summer camp at the lake. During the 1960s, the Lake Ninan Water Ski Club was active.
There are picnic spots under the trees, public toilets, cold water showers and wood barbecues for use. When the lake is full, it is used for water skiing and sailing and there is an abundance of different water birds at this time.
