Boat ramps


A daily fee applies at Shire managed boat ramps to cover parking, launching and recovery. 

Annual permits are also available but must be purchased prior to using the boat ramp.

2.Daily fee

You must pay a fee for each day that you use and park at a Shire boat ramp.

This has been made easy with the introduction of cashless parking meters at boat ramps across the peninsula.

Set up an account online with Parkmobile by visiting, call 1300 564 564 or download the free smart device application at iTunes, Google Play or Windows markets.  You will be guided to register your vehicle (car) registration number and your credit card details.

As an introductory rate the daily fee for use of the boat ramp will be $11 for those using Parkmobile.

Parking vouchers
Users who do not have a credit card, or who are infrequent users of the ramps, can pre-purchase vouchers ($12) from any of the Shire’s customer service centres during business hours. The vouchers are ‘one use’ only and do not have an expiry date; therefore, you can buy a few and use them when you want. Just complete the details on the voucher and display on your dashboard.

The annual permit is $125.00 (GST free).
