Replacing Tailem ferry.

The Narrung ferry crossing will soon be home to one of the State Government’s four new steel-hull ferries built by local company Bowhill Engineering.

Tailem Bend will receive Narrung’s 50-tonne steel-hull ferry which will lift their current load restrictions which is 12 tonnes due to their timber-hull ferry. 

The new ferry is expected to be in place at Narrung on July 20 and Nurrung’s current ferry is expected to be relocated to Tailem Bend on August 3.
