Boating Safety

COVID 19 Restrictions


All operators of powered and un-powered boats should understand the boating safety rules for Victorian waters, and in particular the specific boating rules in place on the Goulburn River, Lake Nagambie and Goulburn Weir.  This section provides advice on the rules applicable to those waters and should be read in conjunction with the general state-wide boating rules made under the provisions of the Marine Act 1988; and temporary boating rules.

Shallow water and under-water hazards

The waterways offer a range of boating opportunities; however, it is important that boat operators recognise that this is a natural environment with inherent risks.  There are extensive areas of shallow water adjacent to the river course and within Lake Nagambie and the Goulburn Weir.  Boat operators should avoid shallow water when travelling at more than 5 knots.  Care is required to avoid running aground or hitting unmarked submerged objects.
