Kirk Point

Accessing western Port Phillip is easier with construction complete at Kirk Point boat ramp. 

The new Kirk Point Boat Ramp facility is making it safer to launch and retrieve small vessels with more car parking capacity and easier access to your vessel from a fixed jetty.

The upgrade’s design was overseen by Better Boating Victoria, which is progressing the state’s biggest ever ramp construction program, while Parks Victoria managed the construction.

Key upgrade features include:

  • Brand new two-lane boat ramp
  • Construction of a new breakwater to protect boaters from southerly and easterly winds
  • A total of 14 car and trailer parking bays have been provided beside the boat ramp with an additional 18 bays in the nearby overflow parking area. There is still ample additional overflow parking outside of these areas.
  • Construction and new addition of an 18m fixed jetty to make it easier to launch and retrieve and provide space for boaters to tie up
  • Installation of Boating Vic cameras covering the ramp and car park to provide extra piece of mind when planning a trip

Kirk Point is suitable for small vessels during medium to high tides only. When using the boat ramp, boaters are reminded to consider the timing of tides and how it may affect the draught of vessels. Boaters with larger vessels are recommended to launch at Werribee, St Helens or Limeburners.

To view conditions before you leave home, head to Boating Vic.

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.
