The area at the end of Nojoor Road has been used informally for many years as a boat ramp with parking within the (unformed) road reserve. Council in partnership with Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR) will upgrade the existing boat ramp to a two lane boat ramp with floating walkway, car park and pathways.
This project involves upgrading the current boat ramp and gravel on Nojoor Road. The project is jointly funded by council (car park and pathways) and DTMR (boat ramp). The design balances the boat ramp and parking requirements, and the significance of the flora and fauna and scenic value of the Maroochy River.
- 2 lane boat ramp with floating walkway and associated rigging/de-rigging bays
- 45 car trailer unit parking spaces

Council will start in mid-April, with work due to be completed late September. During this period the area will be closed. Alternative boat ramps you may like to use during construction include Bradman Avenue, Muller Park and Fishermans Road.

Subject to funding, further recreational elements and amenities may be constructed.
The Nojoor Road site was identified as a priority in the Recreational Boating Facilities Demand Study (2011) commissioned by the Boating Infrastructure and Waterways Management Branch of Transport and Mains Roads. In 2014, council purchased the parcel of land adjacent to Nojoor Road. Part of this land will be used for the car park with the remainder dedicated as an environmental reserve.
