Yeah good idea, don't forget

Yeah good idea, don't forget Coode St ramp in South Perth, only the 1 ramp but a fair few parking bays. Good if you want to fish the narrows through to the causeway.

 This would be a great sticky with all the metro ramps. Could then be extended to include the country ones.

Am sure I have seen something similar elsewhere, but regardless, a great idea.

Cheers

The Peninsular Road one in Maylands does have toilets up in the back part of the carpark. It is arguably the best one in the river.

Dirt ramp, use 4x4 and tinnies only.

 

Very shallow big boats get stuck, has under water hazards eg logs. People are using it

for way to bigga boats and as such, there are massive holes washed under the ramp from people "driving on".

 

Goes from shallow to chest deep without warning.

 

Only 5 marked trailer bays and about 30 car bays.

 

Peanuts often park in the trailer parking and the turn around bit as well, due to poor signage aka zero signage.

The main ramp for the belmont ski area, access from Graham farmer Freeway.

 

Has male and female toilets and bins. 24 hour lights at end of finger jetty between the 2 ramps.

Lots of parking, not sure how many bays.
