Navigation Restriction - Lake Conjola - New boat ramp works and possible limitations to use of public boat ramp

NAVIGATION RESTRICTION
Lake Conjola
NEW BOAT RAMP WORKS AND POSSIBLE LIMITATIONS TO USE OF PUBLIC BOAT RAMP
December 2020 to late June 2021

THE WORKS

Vessel operators are advised that construction of a new boat launching facility is underway in Yooralla Bay, off Havilland Street Conjola Park, and is expected to be operational in late June 2021. This new facility will include two lanes and a pontoon.

Vessel operators further are advised that the boat launching facility accessing Lake Conjola located on private property at Killarney Point, which provided a user pay system for larger trailered vessels, is closed and not accessible to the public due to fire damage until further notice.

Vessel operators should consult the list of local launching facilities and factor in possible site restrictions before launching and retrieving vessels into the waters of Lake Conjola. Accommodation providers with access to the waters of Lake Conjola should be consulted to determine any boating access limitations.
