Permits are issued in the form of a sticker, but can be inserted into a provided waterproof plastic pocket in order to use the permit on various towing vehicles.

Dredging Program

A dredging program is underway at the entrance to Kananook Creek with the aim of improving accessibility to boat users throughout the year. Scheduled monthly dredging (weather permitting) is carried out with a pontoon sub-dredge to maintain 1m navigable depth below chart datum on the approach/entrance. Dredged material is to be deposited for beach renourishment at the adjacent Frankston Beach. Sand deposited on the beach may initially appear darker however sun-bleaching will naturally lighten the sand over time. Some areas will have restricted access during dredging work. Members of the public are advised to follow the on-site signs and warmings provided.

Council cannot guarantee permanent access to Port Phillip Bay, as the water depth in the creek channel and entrances to the bay is subject to natural forces.
