Limeburners Point

A new parking area at Limeburners boat ramp is open to the public completing stage one of planned upgrades at the popular facility.

Project Update: 22 December

Finding a park for your car & trailer at one of Geelong’s busiest boat ramps is now easier with construction complete of the Limeburners boat ramp overflow carpark upgrade. 

The new Limeburners overflow parking area has been upgraded to provide more car & trailer parking capacity at this popular location.

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

Key upgrade features include:

  • A total of 56 car & trailer bays will be created as part of the upgrade plus a further 11 single parking bays, including 2 accessible parks.

Residents within the City of Greater Geelong have some of the highest boat ownership rates in the state. The proposed upgrade at Limeburners Point will increase capacity and improve the functionality of the facility to address the increasing demand in the Geelong region for recreational boating facilities.

Limeburners is one of the busiest ramps in the area, providing access to Corio Bay and western Port Phillip for a variety of recreational activities including fishing for snapper, flathead, calamari and whiting. It also provides boaters with access to the Victorian Fisheries Authority’s rocky reef modules in and around Corio Bay.

The project has been staged, with delivery of Stage 1 including the upgrade of the overflow carpark to include an additional 56 parking bays for car and trailers now complete. Stage 2 – new boat ramps and a wave attenuator will commence in the coming years.

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

Recreational boaters, fishers and members of the broader community provided feedback on the concept in August 2021. Feedback received through this process supported the concept but highlighted issues such as security and ensuring car parks were long enough to accommodate larger vessels.
