With a 55 hectare lake, 2000 metre international standard rowing course, warm up lake, boat shed, storage area and clubhouse, the centre is home to a number of sporting groups and hosts national and international competitions.

Since opening in April 2007, the centre has hosted Dragon Boat, Kayaking, Rowing and Radio Sailing National Championships as well as State Championships in Rowing, Kayaking, Outrigger Canoes, and Radio Sailing. Champion Lakes is also home to Western Australia's 'Head of the River' competitions.

The venue hosted the 2012 Australian Rowing Championships and was the training ground for Australia's Olympic Rowing and Kayaking teams in the lead up to the 2012 London Olympics.

There are approximately 11kms of sealed pathways within the venue for pedestrian and cycle use. The distance around the entire perimeter of Champion Lakes on the Event Path is 5 kms.
