Getfished Tip, Werribee South Boat Ramp

This post is a small part taken from our Fishing Werribee River Entrance Getfished Article.

At the time of writing, boaties are calling on assistance to have the Werribee South Boat Ramp repaired.

Technically there are six boat ramps at Werribee South. I say “technically” because on my last visit earlier in 2019 several were badly obstructed by silt and weed growth.

Look, as much as I historically love the area for pier fishing – the fact is the state of the boat ramps is a disgrace. That’s a state government issue. They promised at the Nov 2018 election this would be a Melbourne wide priority.

There’s also a carpark dedicated to vehicles with boat trailers – which is excellent. As well as a toilet block that is utterly disgusting at times. Indeed the toilets are often so bad they resemble what I’d imagine a secret, lethal disease laboratory to look and smell like.

As of October 2019 usage of the boat ramp is free, along with associated parking.

We’ll see…

But the state of the toilet block, I think, comes back to the local council.

It’s often in a disgusting state in the last few years. I understand some people abuse public facilities. But that’s no excuse for neglect.

Hopefully, this will be corrected, as the local press are running feature stories on the boat ramp neglect as recently as September 2018.

Dredging is a major issue at the Werribee South boat ramp.

Weed and silt build-up has made launching tricky on some of the smaller ramps, reducing the number of boats that can be simultaneously launched.
