Closure of boat ramps at Lake Burbury

26 January 2016

Hydro Tasmania and Marine and Safety Tasmania advise that all three formally recognised boat ramps at Lake Burbury have been closed due to low lake levels as a result of unprecedented low inflows. This includes Darwin Dam, Lake Burbury camp ground and Thureau Hills boat ramps.

These ramps will remain closed until water levels increase to a level that permits safe launching.

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

Hydro Tasmania is committed to keeping all Tasmanians informed about our actions as we work through the current dry period.
