Victorians are set to enjoy a better boating experience with more places to anchor their vessels on the Mornington Peninsula this season thanks to the government’s investment in seasonal moorings.
An extra 30 seasonal moorings will be created on the southern Mornington Peninsula to help reduce congestion on boat ramps during the busier summer months.
The $90,000 investment will also be used to maintain existing 34 seasonal moorings between Rye and Blairgowrie, giving boaters who visit the popular coastal area access to over 60 moorings this summer.
The moorings can be booked through Parks Victoria seasonal moorings booking page from 20 December – so get ready because they book out quickly.
The State Government has made unprecedented investment in recreational boating in Victoria since establishing Better Boating Victoria in March this year.
Boat launching and parking fees at all public boat ramps have been successfully removed, giving Victorians free access to 35 boat ramps across the state including all public boat ramps on the Mornington Peninsula.
Major upgrades as part of a $47.2 million commitment at six boating hotspots are underway with improvements to facilities at Queenscliff, Rhyll, Point Richards, Hastings, Mordialloc and the Cowes Jetty.
In more good news for boaters on the Mornington Peninsula, work is also underway on the $500,000 investment to restore the existing low-landing at the Rye Pier to provide all-abilities access to improve the boating experience for locals and visitors alike.
