Barrington boat ramps temporarily closed

23 September 2018

Boat operators and other recreational users of Lake Barrington are advised the boat ramps and pontoon at West Kentish Park will be closed from today until Wednesday 10 October 2018.

During this period the lake will be drawn down to a minimum level of 116.59m (-5.33m from full) to facilitate the planned outage of the Devils Gate Power Station for turbine maintenance works.

The boat ramps and pontoon will be unusable during this period.

The boat ramp at Wilmot should remain usable although the pontoon will be closed. Hydro Tasmania apologise for any inconvenience caused.
