Lake Nagambie Boat Ramp

Lake Nagambie Boat Ramp was rebuilt in recent years. It's a concrete ramp in excellent condition. Providing great access to the Lake by launching in the Goulburn River. Also providing excellent access to navigate upstream for fishing and sightseeing. It's an easy ramp to launch from for small to medium sized tinny's and shallow draft boats.

Lake Nagambie Boat Ramp is a free, public boat ramp.

The ramp allows you to launch into the Goulburn River.

From there its a short ride down to Lake Nagambie.

Alternatively, you can navigate upstream for sightseeing and river fishing.

It’s a good, easy to use concrete ramp. Finished in 2019. One of the nicest freshwater river ramps I’ve used in Victoria in recent years.

There’s a fishing tournament held here every year, around March, now. The Lake Nagambie boat ramp plays an integral role in this.

The ramp is certainly deep enough to launch a lake or river boat. With a good incline. I launched here without any difficulty.

At the time it was a weekday outside of peak holiday season.

I expect it would become quite busy over the summer holidays and Easter.

Navigating downstream to the lake offers some great fishing opportunities within the river. With lots of overhanging trees and fallen timber structure. As well as reed beds.

If your focus is on Murray Cod or Golden Perch then the structure in the river is a great opportunity. Many good sized Cod and Perch are taken every year. With much of the river being difficult to access by land-based fisho’s.

If you’re after Redfin head down to the lake. There’s some trout around, too.

Of course – the terror of the waterways, European Carp, are present. With some huge specimens caught at times. While reportedly less prevalent than in the past they are still present in large numbers.

Accommodation & Facilities

The area is well serviced with accommodation with the Caravan Park being adjacent to the boat ramp. The caravan has its own private boat ramp, too. As well as an informal ramp if you want to heave your tinny off the trailer and slide it into the lake. Not as hard as it sounds.

Within and nearby the township of Nagambie there are a few other caravan parks. As well as a large number of motels and hotels.

There’s a supermarket for supplies. As well as some great local eating places and take-aways.

There’s also several places you can buy bait and tackle. Year round boat storage facilities and some great family facilities for BBQ and picnics.

A visit to the excellent vineyards locally makes Nagambie a perfect holiday destination. One that’s very close to Melbourne – just a little over an hour and a half.

Location Review & Rating


Pros

  • Modern, clean and well designed concrete boat ramp.
  • A quality freshwater ramp an hour and a half from Melbourne.
  • A simple docking area is provided for post launch.

Cons

  • No boat or fish cleaning facilities. However you probably don't really need either here.
  • Parking is good overall - but a little tight in peak season.
  • Nearest toilets are in caravan park - which are private. So you have to go back to town for this.

Summary

This is an excellent boat ramp.  One of the best freshwater river boat ramps in Victoria in my opinion.  The local community have certainly earned the right to feel proud of it. When I visited there were very few people around - so very few boats.  So launching was simple.  Fast and easy. I re-trailered the boat in the Caravan Park boat ramp.  However, it would have been a no brainer to re-trailer the boat using this ramp.

G'day!

I'm Dave, I live and fish in and around Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
When it comes to fishing I love going out to land-based fishing spots, heading out in the tinny (aka an Aluminum Boat) and kayak fishing.

I've been fishing since I was a teen. Beginning way back in the 1970s. It was a hobby I picked up myself as my family certainly had no interest. Making me the black sheep! My favourite fish is Flathead and Snapper. Though I'm partial to Flake (Gummy Shark) and Calamari too! While I enjoy fishing for freshwater species like Redfin and Murray Cod I prefer eating saltwater species. They're just so mouth-wateringly tasty!

I love writing about some of my favourite Melbourne Fishing Spots while fishing around Victoria. As well as the tackle I use and test.
If you see me while you're out fishing say "G' day" - I'll be the one in a bush hat.

When I'm not fishing I'm working on my websites, such as Getfished, or writing computer software (my profession.)

I try to be as accurate as possible on this website. Most of the information is based on personal experience. However, if you spot an error or think there's something that I should add - no worries! Please use the Contact Form.
