Safety & using the Werribee South Boat Ramp

With the current warm weather and snapper biting in the Bay, it is timely reminder before dragging your boat/watercraft out for the first time this season,  to refresh your memory regarding safe boating and trailer towing.

Your safety and the safety of others is paramount both travelling to and from the water as well as while on the water. Please check not only the condition of your vessel but also the condition of your trailer.

A reminder of safe boating can be found with the link below to the Recreational Boating Safety Handbook.

When launching you vessel, please take care, as boat ramps are situated in a natural environment and are subject to changing conditions. Before heading out onto the water always check the following:

Also, upon your return to shore, please check that your car and trailer, including the coupling have not been tampered with and are safe for you to retrieve your vessel and tow your boat home.Emergency Contact Information: Victorian Water Police (03) 9399 7500 or 000

Parking at Werribee South Boat Ramp

Parking at the Werribee South Boat Ramp is currently open at no cost.
