MarineRescue App

The new MarineRescue App is making it easier than ever for boaters to Log On, Log Off and stay safe on NSW waters. It's the only app that will connect you directly to Marine Rescue NSW.


In early May several days of video production by ACMA took place on Sydney Harbour, at South Head and at the BoM.  The result is two informative videos, one each on How to use VHF radio and Using VHF to obtain weather information for boating.

Marine Rescue Middle Harbour and Port Jackson (South Head signal station) played a major part in the How to Use VHF video.
