Mahers Landing

Better boating facilities are on the way at Maher’s Landing.

The existing Maher’s Landing boat ramp is a single-laned, fair weather boat launching facility located 6kms east of Inverloch on the shore of Anderson Inlet.

Throughout 2020,  Bass Coast Shire Council received funds from Better Boating Victoria to develop concept plans to explore potential improvements to boat ramp, associated infrastructure and car parking there.

The concept designs were released for public feedback by Bass Coast Shire Council in April 2021.

Key features of the concepts included

  • Rebuilding and extending the ramp structure with an additional lane to provide all tide access
  • Provision of a floating or fixed holding structure adjacent to the ramp for temporary berthing while launching and retrieving vessels.
  • Create dedicated rigging and tie down space away from the ramps to reduce congestion at the top of the ramps
  • Formalise car parking bays to improve the efficiency of parking and enable better traffic flow within the site

Better Boating Victoria will engage experienced coastal and civil engineers to progress detailed designs and work towards obtaining the necessary legislative approvals and converting the concept designs for Maher’s Landing into tender and construction-ready plans throughout 2022.
