The District Council of Loxton Waikerie recognises the importance of boating and riverfront facilities for its community and visitors to the region.
The provision of high quality infrastructure, facilities and access to the River Murray for recreational boating enthusiasts is imperative with regard to the region’s tourism attraction, environmental protection and community well being.
The Council has recently upgraded the Moorook Riverfront ($148,000) in 2013/14 and has commenced the upgrade of the Rilli Reserve Boat Ramp ($69,000) and Qualco Boat Ramp ($36,000) in 2014/15. All of these projects were 50% funded through the South Australian Boating Facility Advisory Committee (SABFAC).
The purpose of this plan is to prioritise future boating and riverfront facility projects throughout the Council area so that further applications can be made through SABFAC for additional funding.
The plan has been categorised into three sections:
- Boat Ramp & Ancillary Facilities
- Riverfront Facilities
- Houseboat Facilities
