Final concept design for Rhyll upgrade is ready

The final concept design for the Rhyll boating facility upgrade is ready.

The concept has been finalised based on consultation with boat ramp users and the community and proposes to improve the ramp by providing the following key aspects:

• An all-tide boat ramp
• Longer pontoons as well as including an additional pontoon and jetty
• Separate access for dinghies and kayaks
• Improved traffic flows
• A fish cleaning table (location to be determined with Victorian Fisheries Authority)
• Improved pedestrian access
• Some additional car-trailer parking

This video summarises what you told us during consultation.

*Note: the final design may be modified, pending the outcomes of a heritage survey.


Rhyll boating facility is one of six facilities the government committed to upgrade as part of its unprecedented investment in boating in Victoria.

As part of the upgrade process, we developed and tested three concept designs with the public during a consultation held between 22 November and 6 December 2019. We received significant feedback and used it to inform the final design concept that the boating and fishing community and Bass Coast Shire Council support.

Next steps:

We will be working with Bass Coast Shire Council to progress a detailed design and secure the necessary approvals throughout the rest of 2020. This will include an investigation of environmental and heritage impacts. At this stage, we’re aiming to begin construction next year in the off-peak boating season between May and October 2021.

We will provide updates on the progress of this upgrade as it becomes available.
