Mooring fees

All boating related fees and charges received by Roads and Maritime Services are paid into a Waterways Fund and directly support the delivery of boating related services and infrastructure for our customers.

Boating safety education campaigns, navigation aids and signage, compliance and investigations are supported by the Waterways Fund, as is the Better Boating Program, a grant program supporting improvements to boat ramps and related public boating facilities.

These fees are current and include the GST where applicable, unless otherwise indicated. For more information, please contact us.
