Boat ramp and jetty upgrade at Kangaroo Lake

Kangaroo Lake now has a new jetty installed at the northern boat ramp on Lake View Road. The stronger structure, constructed of aluminium with steel piles, will stand the test of time and replaces the old pontoon that was in disrepair.

The main structure is the same size as the original and provides a convenient spot for boaters to tie up when launching. The end section is a new addition and features solar lighting, seating, rod holders, and a bait board.

Thanks to your fishing licence fees, Gannawarra Shire Council received two grants to get the job done, including $240,000 from the Better Boating Fund, which reinvests boating licence and registration fees back into worthwhile projects, and a $70,000 grant from recreational fishing licence fees.

With this new jetty and more than 1.3 million Murray cod and golden perch stocked since 2003, you’d be hopping mad to pass up a visit to Kangaroo Lake next time you’re in the state’s northwest.
