(Marine Safety Act 1998 s.12)

Manning River, Harrington
New Years Eve fireworks display
7:30pm to 10:00pm – Monday 1 January 2018


Vessel operators are advised that a Special Event pursuant to Section 12(2) of the Marine Safety Act 1998 is to be held on the Manning River on the Harrington Training Wall and between 7:30pm and 10:00pm on Monday 1 January 2018.


Due to the potential to affect the safety of navigation, Roads and Maritime has granted an Exclusive Use Aquatic Licence to Milton Skinner to conduct the event and an Exclusion Zone (‘the Zone’) will be established on the navigable waters of the Manning River, around the Harrington Training Wall. The Zone will comprise the Eastern extremity of the Harrington Back Channel and the Manning River entrance between the above times. The Zone will extend for a radius of 300 metres around the firing location near the bar warning sign and will be patrolled by a control vessel.


Roads and Maritime Services advises;

  1. Persons within the vicinity of the Zone must comply with any directions given by a Boating Safety Officer or Police Officer in relation to the Special Event or to marine safety. Failure to comply with any such direction is an offence (Marine Safety Act 1998, s.15A - Maximum Penalty $3,300.00).
  2. No unauthorised vessels are permitted to enter the Zone and to do so may be an offence (Marine Safety Act 1998, s.12(5) - Maximum Penalty $1,100.00)
