Blackfellows Lake Boat Ramp


The following scope of works will be delivered at the site:

  • Replacement of the existing gravel boat ramp with a new reinforced concrete boat ramp;
  • Upgrade (widening and sealing) of 600m of access road, including shoulder parking and car / trailer turnaround points;
  • Installation of lighting; and
  • Installation of a finger pontoon jetty.
  • Works to 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.

Council’s Maritime Infrastructure Plan (February 2014) identified upgrades to the existing boat ramp, launching area and access road in the short term scope of works; and installation of lighting and a pontoon jetty in the medium / long term scope of works.


Total project funding = $580,000

Community Strategic Plan (CSP) link

Feedback from the Tathra / Kalaru area in response to the “Understanding Our Place” community engagement process, which subsequently informed the 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”.
