    Burndap Lake public landing

    Locals and visitors will benefit from easier access to the river through this project and the Maribyrnong River Boat Ramp project, which together will help revitalise this waterside precinct. The public floating pontoon facility, to be located in place of the former privately managed Edgewater Marina, will be able to accommodate multiple short-term berths and feature a lower-level platform suitable for paddle craft. Find out more about the project.
