Aquatic Events Advice
PoMC requires notification advice for aquatic events which take place within, or close to, the commercial shipping channels and lanes within the Port of Melbourne waters. Aquatic Events Advice are issued free of charge by PoMC.
View map of the main channels.
Organisers must tell event participants to keep clear of commercial shipping at all times. This responsibility still applies even when PoMC has not distributed an advice.
To complete an Aquatic Events Advice form, download the application form (DOC, 170 kb) and return it to the Navigation Services Officer by email at least five working days before the event. View a sample application form (PDF, 210 kb).
