In November 2007, new boating zones were implemented for the Victorian waters of Lake Hume. These changes simplify the zoning rules for the lake and improve public safety and access to the lake at low levels. The changes have been introduced following extensive consultation with affected stakeholders over a period of many months. More information can be obtained using the following links:

Marine Safety Victoria
Visitors are reminded that there is a risk of vessels colliding with submerged objects or running aground. All boat operators are therefore asked to exercise great caution and to be aware of and adhere to all safety restrictions.
No boating restrictions apply at Lake Hume while water levels are at or above 169.499 mAHD. Below this level, 5 knot restrictions in the waters south of Bethanga Bridge and north of an east-west line extending from the southern end of the Hume Dam embankment apply. Normal boating operations apply in other areas.
