There are a number of public boat ramps around Melbourne and the wider area of Victoria. These are located on the bays and inlets as well as freshwater lakes and rivers.
In 2019 the Victorian government moved to remove all fees from public boat ramps and associated vehicle and trailer parking.
In addition, funding is planned to be set aside for the redevelopment of public boat ramps where required as well as a commitment to allocate more funding for ongoing maintenance.
As of October 2019, public boat ramps are free to use. Some private boat ramps may charge a fee at their discretion.
Note that associated public parking for vehicles with boat trailers is also free.
Vehicles using the parking without a trailer may be subject to parking fines as the areas are designated for boat trailer usage.
Make sure to read signage before parking.
Boat “ramp etiquette” is anything that makes it easier for all persons launching boats. It ensures quicker launches and retrieves through consideration and use of some very simple rules.
