A new boat ramp officially opened on Thursday 10 October at Nagambie Lakes, giving recreational water users better and safer access to fishing and boating opportunities on the Goulburn River.
The new deep-water ramp at Nagambie Lakes offers 24-hour public access to the Goulburn River and includes new car and trailer parking.
Boaters can access the new facility via road entry from Loddings Lane.
The $494,795 collaborative project was partly funded by the Victoria Government’s Boating Safety and Facilities Program, which provided $294,795, 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 when many anglers travel to the region to go boating and target stocked Murray cod and golden perch.
In more good news for boaters, parking and launching fees have now been removed at all public boat ramps across Victoria, including Nagambie Lakes.
These improvements are part of the government’s unprecedented investment in boating, which includes $47.2 million in the 2019-20 state budget to remove parking and launching fees at all publicly available boat ramps in Victoria, upgrading six priority boat ramps, and reviewing boating infrastructure management arrangements in Port Phillip and Western Port.
