Gippsland Ports has installed a total of 29 public swing moorings that provide temporary mooring opportunities for the recreational boating public at popular destinations within the Gippsland Lakes.  The moorings have been placed at locations which provide attractive destinations for waterway users and offer shelter in a variety of weather conditions.

In addition to providing temporary mooring opportunities, public swing moorings are environmentally friendly and are designed to minimise disturbance of the seafloor and particularly damage to any existing seagrass. Swing moorings also allow an opportunity for ongoing monitoring of seagrass during scheduled mooring inspections.

Gippsland Ports has also secured Better Boating Victoria funding for 5 additional swing moorings that will be located at popular sheltered locations in the Mallacoota waterway.  These locations will be added to the Gippsland Ports ‘Waterways Online’ when they are installed.

To ensure everyone gets a chance to use them, all public swing moorings have a 48 hours time limit.

Gippsland Ports is pleased to be able to contribute further to the attraction of the Gippsland region as a boating tourism destination.
