Don’t spoil a great day out on the water by experiencing ‘boat ramp rage’.

Fishers are asked to keep in mind a few simple rules to ensure boat ramps remain clean and tidy and are used in organised manner:
  • Do not drive onto a boat ramp unless launching or retrieving their boat.
  • The combined weight of a vehicle and boat on the ramp must not exceed five tonnes (gross).
  • All rubbish must be deposited in nearby bins, with the exception of fish offal, which should be deposited in bins away from the boat ramp to discourage scavenging by animals and unpleasant odours

Council jointly manages recreational boating facilities with the State Government. The Department of Transport and Main Roads is currently undertaking a Recreational Boating Facilities Demand Forecasting Study which will involve extensive consultation and demand forecasting for the future of recreational boating facilities throughout the state.
