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 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.

We have used the feedback we received from the consultation to inform a final concept design that will be used as the basis for the future upgrade.

The final concept design can be viewed here.

Next steps:

We will be working with the Borough of Queenscliff to progress a detailed design and secure the necessary approvals throughout the rest of 2020.

At this stage, we’re aiming to begin construction next year in the off-peak boating season between May and October 2021.
