Lake Tinaroo has over 200 metres of shoreline which provide many bays with smooth water that are protected from the wind. The lake is used for sailing, water skiing, jet skis and swimming, there is camping close by, and regular sports and other activities are held attracting locals and tourists. The Avenue of Honour can also be accessed near the Lake Tinaroo Boat Ramp.
The lake is surrounded by national park, rainforest, pine tree plantations and Australian "bush". Hiking paths wind in and out of the mountains surrounding the lake and range from a pleasant walk from the parking lot to the water-front, to week-long treks around the lake and its mountains.
Many species of fish and other aquatic animals populate the lake. The barramundi can grow to an enormous size in the lake because they have no natural predators. Each year, the lake is stocked with young barramundi from the Walkamin Research Station as the species is unable to breed in the lake due to the lack of access to salt water. Also present in Lake Tinaroo are eel-tailed catfish, sooty grunter, sleepy cod, mouth almighty, archer fish, spangled perch, long tom and many species of crayfish, including the red-claw and yabby.
