Waterway users will be aware that our lakes are a fragile environment. Fish, wildlife habitat, shorelines and shoreline structures such as jetties and berthed vessels are vulnerable to damage from boat wake.

Vessel operators are reminded of the need to respect the environment and other waterway users by reducing the wake generated by their vessel.

Gippsland Ports has set speed limits throughout the lake system with consideration of both the environment and waterway users.

Local areas of most concern are MacMillan Strait and the Canals at Paynesville, Bancroft Bay at Metung and Cunninghame Arm/North Arm at Lakes Entrance.

Gippsland Ports asks boaters to observe these speed limits and to maintain a constant lookout to ensure their wake is not adversely affecting the environment or creating a hazard for other waterway users.
