NEW BOAT RAMP NOW OPEN AT NAGAMBIE LAKES

Boaters and fishers at Nagambie Lakes will find it easier to get out onto the water thanks to the opening of a new boat ramp.

The new deep-water ramp at Nagambie Lakes offers 24-hour public access on the Goulburn River and includes new car and trailer parking. Boaters can access the new facility via road entry from Loddings Lane.

The Andrews Labor Government contributed $294,795 through the Boating Safety and Facilities Program to the construction of the new boat ramp, with Strathbogie Shire contributing $100,000 and a local family providing an in-kind land donation of $100,000.

The opening of the new Nagambie Lakes boat ramp comes in time for the spring boating season and when many anglers travel to the region to go boating and target stocked Murray cod and golden perch.

The Labor Government has also made it cheaper and easier for boaters and fishers to get out of the water with every public boat ramp in Victoria now free for parking and launching, including at Nagambie Lakes.

The Government’s unprecedented investment in boating and fishing that will ensure every dollar of licence and registration revenue goes towards improving boating facilities and safety.

Better Boating Victoria is building on the success of the Government’s record investment in the Target One Million program, which includes a huge boost to fish stocking, a new native fish hatchery and better planning for fishing tourism.

Better Boating Victoria is overseeing the delivery of the government’s boating commitments. For more information visit betterboating.vic.gov.au.
