Gippsland Ports has installed a total of 29 public swing moorings for use by recreational boaters at popular destinations within the Gippsland Lakes. The moorings have been placed at locations which provide attractive destinations for waterway users, offer shelter in a variety of weather conditions, and allow an opportunity for ongoing monitoring of seagrass during scheduled mooring inspections.
In addition to providing temporary mooring opportunities for the recreational boating public, Gippsland Ports newest swing moorings are environmentally friendly, being designed to minimise disturbance of the seafloor and particularly damage to any existing seagrass.
To ensure fair and equitable use, all public swing moorings have a 48 hours time limit.
