Mordialloc – Stage 2

Project update, June 30, 2022

Improvements to parking at Mordialloc’s Governor Road boat ramp are continuing to progress.

After several improvements to boating along the Mordialloc Creek, parking at Governor Road is being upgraded to increase boat and trailer parking capacity. Click here to find out more.

Drainage works are complete on site and kerb and channel works are also done.

Machinery is on site laying the sub-base for the parking area. Asphalting and linemarking will follow.

Work will be done in coming weeks, well and truly in time for snapper season.

The ramp is closed while crews are on site. Boaters can launch at Patterson River or find another nearby ramp via the FREE Boating Vic app or by heading to www.boating.vic.gov.au


A concept design has been developed which aims to achieve the following:

  • Provide approximately 9 additional trailer/boat parking bays
  • Install a queuing lane beside the boat ramp to improve the flow and efficiency for launching and retrieval of vessels
  • Upgrade the existing carpark pavement, kerb, channel and drainage
  • Improved traffic flows to and from Governor Road
  • Additional landscaping around the carpark, including planting 3 new indigenous trees for every tree that needs to be removed
  • Improve the footpath network and provide an accessible car parking bay near the toilet block
  • Extend the carpark pavement to construct a footpath along the nature strip and to accommodate the additional parking bays

Two tide boards have already been installed at Nepean Highway Bridge, otherwise known as Pompei’s Bridge, to make it easier and safer for boaters to navigate by clearly indicating creek depth.

Construction was completed in mid-2021 to install a new all-abilities pontoon west of the Nepean Highway Bridge, replace pontoons and undertake dredging at the boat ramp.
