Moorook upgrade complete

25 Jun 2014

A new boating facility has been opened at the Moorook riverfront to cater for the growing number of skiers that use the stretch of water.
 
The Moorook riverfront is a popular community area for the township, which is located between Kingston and Loxton in the Riverland.

Ski boat usage on Moorook’s riverfront has almost doubled in the past twelve months.

At its peak, watercraft launching and retrievals each day have increased from around 100 to 140, which is higher than in nearby Loxton.

The upgrade works include a 190 metre long riverfront space with a dedicated ski area next to the existing boat ramp, which will help reduce congestion and improve safety for the benefit of all users.

A floating pontoon has been installed at the boat ramp to assist with the launch and retrieval of boats, as well as a separate dedicated houseboat mooring area.

The $240,000 upgrade was jointly funded by the District Council of Loxton Waikerie and the State Government.

In addition, Berri’s Riverview Drive Marina boating facility will soon be undergoing a major upgrade, along with two other locations.

This $640,000 upgrade will be jointly funded by the State Government and Berri Barmera Council, and will cater to increasing demand for boating facilities at Berri.
 
The Berri upgrade – due for completion by the end of September 2014 – will include a new four-lane boat ramp to replace the existing two-lane ramp, with a de-rigging area and upgraded parking facilities.

The State Government is also providing $38,000 to upgrade the nearby Rilli Reserve boat ramp, and $20,000 for the boat ramp at Qualco.
