The seabed around the Bonna Point boat ramp is very shallow and these conditions extend from the toe of the boat ramp to 180m offshore. The shallow conditions mean that the boat ramp does not provide access at low tides and is most suited to shallow draft vessels. Please consider the tide times when using the boat ramp and avoid launching or retrieving your boat during low tide.

Bonna Point borders the Towra Point Aquatic Reserve, which is the largest aquatic reserve in NSW and protects important seagrass meadows and is an important area for fish and marine invertebrates.  The intertidal zone on the southern shores of Bonna Point also contain low coastal saltmarsh vegetation, which is an endangered ecological community at risk of extinction due to sea level rise and physical disturbance.  Migratory shorebirds inhabit the beaches around Bonna Point, which can be easily disturbed by dogs, even on leash.  A dedicated dog off leash area has been provided elsewhere to the right of the boat ramp at Silver Beach and visitors can assist by being responsible dog owners.
