Boat registration fees
All boating related fees and charges received by Roads and Maritime 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.
