The Queenscliff boating facility is getting an upgrade thanks to the State Government’s unprecedented investment in boating in Victoria.

Queenscliff is located on the Bellarine Peninsula and is popular with boaters and anglers who want to access the wonderful fishing and recreational water opportunities in Port Phillip.

Thompson Berrill Landscape Design (TBLD), a specialist landscape architecture and engineering firm, have been engaged to develop concept designs that will improve the boating facility.

Better Boating Victoria is overseeing the government’s boating commitments and will work with the Borough of Queenscliffe, local community groups, and the boating community to upgrade the Queenscliff boating facility.

Community input is critical to the project and delivering an improved facility that meets the needs of local and visiting boaters and anglers. That’s why we have involved the community in this project from the outset.

On Saturday 30 November 2019 in partnership with Maritime Safety Victoria and the Victorian Fisheries Authority we hosted a community consultation event at the Queenscliff boat ramp for people to see two draft concept designs and have their say about the upgrade.

We also hosted an online consultation for people who couldn’t get along to our event to provide feedback on the draft concept designs. This consultation ran from Saturday 30 November to Monday 9 December 2019.

We used the feedback we received from the consultation to inform a final concept design released in June 2020 that was supported by the boating community and the Borough of Queenscliff. Since then, we engaged more with stakeholders to further improve the functionality and safety of the boat ramp and the proposed kayak launch area. We have accommodated this feedback and updated the original concept design to reflect these improvements. The updated design can be viewed HERE.

This design will form the basis of the formal town planning process that commenced on 30 November 2020.

We are currently aiming to begin construction outside of the busy boating season in 2021.
