Jetty upgrade at Corringle Foreshore Reserve
Friday 9 February, 2018
Parks Victoria is pleased to announce the existing boat ramp jetty at Corringle Foreshore Reserve will be removed to make way for a new, safer structure as part of improving camping and fishing opportunities.
Corringle Foreshore Reserve is one of the 10 parks and reserves joint-managed with the Gunaikurnai people and the jetty upgrade is consistent with the recently issued Draft Management Plan.
The new jetty will be built to modern standards and will feature a non-slip grid mesh deck.
The construction works commenced this week with an anticipated completion date of 23 February- weather dependent.
Parks Victoria would like to advise visitors that boat ramp and the immediate area will be closed while the construction works are undertaken to ensure a safe workplace.
The main campground area will remain open for campsite bookings.
Parks Victoria has worked with the Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation to plan these works which are funded through a grant from Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA) Better Fishing Facilities Funding.
