IFS supports boating safety

Maintaining navigation lights on our inland waters

The Inland Fisheries Service installed and maintains navigation lights at 30 popular boat ramps around Tasmania.

The navigation lights are automatically activated on dusk and operate throughout the night enabling anglers to return to the ramp in low light. The white flashing lights are visible at up to 2 nautical miles from the ramp.

Installed in partnership with Mast and Hydro Tasmania, the IFS regularly tests and maintains the lights. The solar powered batteries need to be replaced on a 4 year cycle. Inland Fisheries Service recently replaced the batteries at Lake Crescent and Wilmot ramp (Lake Barrington).

Anglers are encouraged to report any lights that are not operating after dark to infish@ifs.tas.gov.au or 1300 463 474
