Sail-World.com : Parks Victoria upgrade boat launching facilities at Boat Bay
Parks Victoria upgrade boat launching facilities at Boat Bay


Following works by Parks Victoria, funded through the State Government’s $16 million Recreational Fishing Initiative, boat launching facilities at Boat Bay, Peterborough, have been upgraded.

Fisheries Victoria Executive Director Ross McGowan said the funds had been used to extend the concrete ramp and install a sloping apron which will assist vehicles and trailers in gaining access to and from the beach launching point.

'The upgraded ramp is good news for anglers and divers who chase snapper, gummy shark, King George whiting, sweep, abalone and rock lobster from this rugged part of the west coast,' Mr. McGowan said.

'The Boat Bay ramp is generally considered amongst the steepest and most difficult in Victoria and this upgrade will make it much easier for four wheel drive vehicles to drive on and off the ramp to launch and retrieve their boats from the beach.'

Mr. McGowan said the improvements would make launching at Boat Bay safer, but boat owners, especially visitors unfamiliar with the location, should exercise caution and only launch boats using four wheel drive vehicles and only during favourable conditions.

Now in its third year, the Recreational Fishing Initiative (RFI) has funded more than 80 projects to improve access and facilities but is also stocking more fish, building fishing reefs, undertaking more fisheries research and strengthening fisheries enforcement and education.

Importantly this initiative is additional to the range of projects already funded by recreational fishing licence fees to improve recreational fishing in Victoria.

'Such projects are designed to keep Victoria a top fishing destination for the 721,000 Victorians who fish annually and the many tourists who travel to the state seeking quality fishing,' Mr. McGowan said.
