Batemans Bay Boaters Ramp Up For Holidays

Boating enthusiasts around Batemans Bay will have double the fun this summer, with both ramps on to the Clyde River open during the holiday peak.

Member for Bega, Andrew Constance said boat ramps at Clyde Street west and the Old Punt Road would both open for the busiest boating period allowing more river access from today, 17 December through until 11 January 2021.

“We know that heading out on the river is a great way to spend the day, having both local boat ramps open will be welcomed by locals and visitors to the region.

“Both boat ramps being open in Batemans Bay during this period will mean up to eight boat trailer parking spaces, a safe boat holding location, and a boat trailer turn-around area,” Mr Constance said.

“Access to the river will return to alternating arrangements between Clyde Street and Old Punt boat ramps from 11 January 2020, starting with the closure of Old Punt Road boat ramp.

“Signs will be in place at both boat ramps to keep the community informed.”

Transport for NSW requires use of the northern and southern foreshore areas of the Clyde River to safely build the new bridge. Both boat ramps will open when major work ends.

Boat users can also subscribe for specific updates regarding boat ramp access via email and text message by contacting the project team at or 1800 870 119.

River users may continue to use Hanging Rock boat ramp in Batemans Bay and Nelligen Boat ramps in Nelligen throughout major work.
