Seymour – Manners Street

Getting out onto the Goulburn River at Seymour will be made easier with plans for an upgrade to the Manners St boat ramp.

Better Boating Victoria (BBV) is working with Mitchell Shire Council and local boaters on plans for an upgrade to the Manners St boat ramp in Lions Park. Click here to view the concept.

Consultation is open via an online survey. Click here to have your say.

There is currently a single lane concrete ‘geomesh’ boat ramp which has deteriorated over time, an adjacent rock wall immediately upstream of the ramp which provides some protection from higher velocities river flow periods, and a fixed jetty downstream of the boat ramp which provides little benefit to boaters due to the height and wide concrete footings.

A draft concept plan has been developed to enable public review and feedback. Consultation is open until March 6 2024 and a public drop-in session will occur on Wednesday 21 February from 4PM to 6PM at the Lions Park, adjacent to the Manners St boat ramp.

What’s Been Happening?

The Victorian Recreational Boating Strategy identified the need for an upgrade to the Manners St boat ramp at Seymour. In early 2023 Better Boating Victoria engaged engineers from Confluence Group to work on a concept plan for a future upgrade to the boat ramp.

BBV and the engineers have met with Mitchell Shire Council, DEECA and local fishers and boaters to develop the current concept in preparation for opening up to public consultation.

More information, including FAQs, is available here.

What’s Happening Next?

Public consultation is now open until 6 March 2024 via an online survey. A public drop in event will also be held at Lions Park Seymour on Wednesday, 21 February. BBV will then review the submissions and where possible incorporate changes into the final concept design and will then continue to progress designs to facilitate future improvements.
