June 2019: Temporary closure of Old Tanjil Road boat ramp and ‘loop’ car park:

June-July 2019:  The Old Tanjil Road boat ramp and ‘loop’ car park will be temporarily closed for 3-4 weeks from Monday 17 June to the first week of July. We are replacing the existing jetty with two floating jetties, either side of the boat ramp. Please use the alternative boat ramp at the Spillway Road end of the lake.  The picnic facilities remain open.

Each of the new jetties will be 48m long. The $165,000 project has been co-funded by a $132,000 grant from Maritime Safety Transport Victoria and Southern Rural Water. For more information, please call the project team on 1300 139 510.

Note that this does not affect the Spillway Road boat ramp, the remaining car parks and the recreation area at the wall end of the lake. We apologise for any temporary inconvenience.
