Minister for Sport John Eren officially opened the upgraded Mildura and District Ski Club boat ramp last month. The new concrete ramp replaces an old ramp that was more than 40 years old. It means more powerboats can be launched from the riverbank, allowing more people to get out onto the water.
It’s also a major boost to the Mildura and District Ski Club’s annual Mildura 100 – known as the fastest ski race in the world – and the Ted Hurley Classic.
Eren said, “We’re giving more people the chance to get out on the mighty Murray and make a splash in the sports they love.”
He added, “This new boat ramp will help the Mildura District Ski Club grow and welcome more members, while bringing even more tourists to the region.”
A modern and safer boat ramp with better access to the river will see these major events go from strength to strength, and continue to attract thousands of visitors and competitors to Mildura each year – creating jobs and boosting the local economy.
