    The Borumba concrete boat ramp will be closed from Monday 29 May 2017 due to the reduced water level.
    A recent risk assessment indicates it is not safe to launch trailerable vessels from the concrete ramp at the current water level. The closure is not related to water quality.
    The alternate temporary ramp is being maintained but is accessible to 4wd vehicles only.
    We thank you for your patience and we will continue to monitor lake levels and the condition of the temporary ramp.
