Rhyll Boat Ramp opens up

Thursday 2 September 2021

Bass Coast Shire Council’s work on Stage 1 of the Rhyll Boat Ramp development is nearing completion, allowing the facility to re-open from Wednesday, 1 September, just in time for snapper season.

The recent carpark works will allow the public to use this facility over the peak summer season, however, a reduced number of car and trailer spaces will be available during this period. Marine-based construction (Stage 2) will begin in February/March 2022.

It is anticipated that part of the seawall and areas of the existing carpark and playground area will remain a construction zone until completed later in 2021. For safety reasons, temporary fencing will remain in place to provide protection to the public from the construction works.

The redevelopment of the Rhyll Boat Ramp is being delivered by Council and is fully funded by the State Government through Better Boating Victoria, with the seawall component funded by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.

The total project cost is over $5 million.

Council recognises that it can be a challenge to deliver the necessary works and not affect the residents and boat ramp users and appreciates patience and consideration from the community while the works are underway.
