Community Consultation

The boat ramp at Ellis Street in Augusta will be closed from Monday 17 January 2018 for approximately three weeks. 

The purpose of the closure is to facilitate the installation of a universal access floating finger jetty immediately upstream of the boat ramp, which will improve the safety of boat launching at this location. 

The floating jetty is 75% funded by the state government’s Recreational Boating Facilities Scheme and $25% by the Shire.  During the boat ramp closure, boats can be launched at nearby boat ramps located at The Colourpatch and at Irwin Street in Augusta.  The Shire apologies for any inconvenience.
