Morass Bay - Arthurs Lake

Before and after shots of the boat launching area at Morass Bay. No parking signs have been installed on the approach to keep the area clear for turning and launching (Stephen and Adam please use obstruction infringement/caution if required). Parking is available on Nielsen Crescent approx 50m walk from the ramp until the lake level drops. No Parking signs will be removed when there is enough space for parking at the ramp.


We also took the opportunity to increase available parking at the Dam Wall ramp in anticipation of increased usage due to the inundation of the Pumphouse Bay ramp.

Simon and Michael, thanks for your support and assistance.
