Closure of boat ramps at Great Lake

19 January 2016

Hydro Tasmania advises that only one formally recognised boat ramp remains open at Great Lake.

Prior to Christmas, Cramps Bay and Swan Bay boat ramps were closed, following advice from Marine and Safety Tasmania and the Inland Fisheries Service that they are not usable at current water levels. This month, Tods Corner, Haddens Bay and Brandum Bay boat ramps have been closed. The five ramps will remain closed until water levels increase.

The low level boat ramp at Boundary Bay remains open on the western shore of Great Lake. The turn off to the ramp is located on the Lake Highway approximately 7km north of the Marlborough Highway intersection. Further information about the Boundary Bay boat ramp is available at

Hydro Tasmania encourages lake users to show courtesy to other users by parking vehicles and trailers at least 50 metres away from the Boundary Bay foreshore launching area, and observing no camping areas.

Up to date information on access to water bodies managed by Hydro Tasmania is available on Hydro Tasmania’s website
