Victorian Recreational Boating Strategy 2021/22 under way

The Victorian State Government have released an overarching vision for 2021-2022 Recreational Boating Strategy. According to the government website, the Strategy will address long-standing issues in the sector and underpin prioritisation of boating investment.

The Victorian Government have also passed legislation to establish the Better Boating Fund, that will return every dollar of marine licensing and boat registration fees to improve boating safety and facilities. This was made operational as of July 2021.

The Recreational Boating Strategy will ultimately inform how the Better Boating Fund will be allocated, with the government looking towards the community to understand what they believe are Victoria’s priorities.
