Boating Safety Day - 14 October 2018

It’s that time of year again, when Roads and Maritime partner with DPI’s Gone Fishing Day to bring you Boating Safety Day at six special locations across the NSW coast.

This free community event is on Sunday 14 October 2018, between 9am and 3pm, and is suitable for the whole family. Boaters can enjoy a range of marine activities and learn about safe and responsible boating.
