Boating Report gives insight into ocean conditions at Bastion Point

Volunteers from Mallacoota have been counting boats over the last 6 months – not because they can’t sleep, but to collect data to better inform decisions on economic and safety issues at Bastion Point. The report indicates that wind speed is a major determinant of boat launching at Bastion Point – and a breakwater won’t do anything to change that. See the report here.

At the same time, a new low impact ramp has been opened at Torquay’s Fishermans Beach – see our one pager on this recently completed ocean access boat ramp that meets relevant Australian Standards, whilst giving full consideration to preserving the social, landscape and environmental values of the area.
