Kirk Point

Accessing western Port Phillip will be made easier with plans being drawn up for boating upgrades at Kirk Point boat ramp. 

The ramp is one of three in the Geelong area getting better facilities to make launching and retrieving boats a stress-free experience. 

Kirk Point is a single-lane ramp located east of Avalon Airport in The Spit Wildlife Reserve. 

The existing ramp is exposed and does not feature a pontoon or jetty to allow for boats to be tied up, limiting capacity.

The area is popular with fishers as well as bird watchers within the adjoining wildlife reserve who use the facility for parking. 

Parking is a mix of formal and informal parking. 

Kirk Point is located close to the offshore Wilson’s Reef rocky reef module. 

BMT Engineering, a specialised maritime engineering firm have been engaged to prepare detailed designs for the upgrade of the Kirk Point Boat Ramp. 

To address issues of wind and wave impacts at the boat ramp and provide safe, functional use of the Kirk Point Boat Ramp the upgrade aims to achieve the following design outcomes: 

  • Upgrade the boat ramp to a two-lane facility. 
  • Construct a breakwater to provide shelter from wave action.
  • Reclaim additional land to provide improved parking capacity and efficiency.
  • Other incremental improvements including upgrade of the overflow carpark and the delivery of 31 carparks large enough for a car & trailer across the facility. 

Key environmental permits and approvals have been gained from the Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning and upgrade works are anticipated to commence from Autumn 2023.
