Getfished Tip, Portarlington Holiday Park Boat Ramp

This post is a small part taken from our Fishing Portarlington Pier Getfished Article.

The Portarlington Holiday Park Boat Ramp is provided for the caravan and camping patrons.

I’ve not personally launched from this ramp.  However, reports from those who have indicated it’s generally in pretty good condition.  My last inspection, October 2019, showed it to be nice for 4wd’s but risky for 2wd vehicles.  This is due to the sand build-up on the ramp.  So I’d advise caution.

Like most bayside ramps it can get a bit of build-up from washed-up weed and sand.  Watch the back tyres for slipping at low tide. This is why I tend to lean towards recommending it to 4WD users. Especially with heavier boats.

Generally, I carry a bag of kitty litter with me when launching a boat.  It gives my back tyres something to grab if conditions on the ramp warrant it. It’s a cheap, simple and environmentally harmless solution.  Just be sure you buy the fired clay varieties as the newspaper recycled kind isn’t going to work.

On my inspection of this ramp, the kitty litter trick wouldn’t have worked. To much sand and weed for my RWD Ford Falcon. Particularly at low tide. I’d not attempt an FWD on this ramp at all.

Given the amount of available beach that’s close by and away from the boaties I recommend choosing another spot for shore-based.

Crowding out boaties is unnecessary, unfair and dangerous to them, you and other members of the public.

Courtesy and consideration will always go to improve our hobby.

To the north and south of the boat ramp are ample clean and clear beaches for casting from the shore.
