Boat Ramps

Boat ramp cleaning and inspections

Servicing of the boating facility will be undertaken as near to low tide as is practicable on the shown date for scheduled boat ramp cleaning and inspections.

During this time the ramp may be partially or fully closed and some delays may be experienced.

It is sometimes necessary for this schedule to be altered; therefore, the dates shown may be subject to change.

Boat ramp, floating walkway and pontoon locations

Council maintains a number of boating facilities across the Fraser Coast.

Council-managed boat ramps are for recreational use by trailerable vessels and have a load limit of five tonnes, unless otherwise signed.    

Council also manages two public floating pontoons:

  • Mary River, near March Street, Maryborough, is intended to accommodate recreational vessels up to a maximum of 50 tonnes, 30m long, a 7.5m beam, a 1.5m draft and with a 1.2m fully laden freeboard.  A maximum berthing time of 30 minutes applies to the outer face of the pontoon; however, there are no time restrictions for tenders berthing on the inner/landward face of the pontoon.  A water supply and CCTV installation has occurred since opening.  
  • Burrum River, west of Ross Street, Burrum Heads, is intended to
    accommodate recreational vessels up to a maximum of 30m long, a 7.5m beam, displacement of 30 tonnes (on outer face), and recreational vessels up to a maximum of 8m long, a 3.4m beam, displacement of 5 tonnes (on inner face). A maximum berthing time of 30 minutes applies to the outer face of the pontoon; however, there are no time restrictions for tenders berthing on the inner/landward face of the pontoon; Water supply is available.

Commercial users are only able to use the public boat ramps or pontoons, where permitted.  All commercial enquiries should be submitted to Council via enquiry@frasercoast.qld.gov.au
