Project Summary/background

The Bermagui Harbour Boat Ramp Upgrade project includes:

  • replacement of the existing boat ramp with a new three-lane reinforced concrete boat ramp
  • new pontoon to improve accessibility and capacity
  • existing pontoon to be retained
  • road line-marking the carpark area to improve manoeuvring

The project will be designed and constructed within environmental and heritage regulations


The overarching purpose of this project is to improve the standard of this recreational boating facility, utilised by locals and visitors alike.

The Bermagui Harbour Boat Ramp is one of the Bega Valley Shire Council’s busiest boat ramps with hundreds of boating users visiting the region to take part in fishing competitions or to enjoy the fabulous waters off Bermagui. 

Noting the popularity of this facility, it is Council’s intention to improve its function and safety and to provide the most up to date facilities to encourage improved use and visitation to the region.


Total project funding: $1,233,615

  • Transport for NSW contribution: $993,605 via the NSW Boating Now Program
  • Bega Valley Shire Council contribution: $240,009

Connection to Council's Community Strategic Plan

Feedback from the Bermagui area in response to the ‘Understanding Our Place’ community engagement process, which subsequently informed the Community Strategic Plan (CSP), included ‘improved recreation facilities and spaces’. This feedback links to CSP Outcome 1 Active and Healthy Communities; specifically, the second goal of this outcome of ‘access to good quality recreation and sporting facilities’.
