A boat ramp commemorates Kevin Doyle who was accidently killed at Lake Argyle in August 1978.

Kevin Doyle was employed as a manager of the Darwin Land Services. He took up water skiing in 1970 and was the main force in supporting a move by boat owners for the construction of a ramp to allow boats to be launched at all tide levels. He was killed in a boating accident on Lake Argyle, Kununurra (Western Australia) before the ramp was completed.
