Safety Camera at Marion Narrows
(Thursday 10 June 2021)
In the interests of boating safety Tas Maritime Radio (TMR) has installed a live camera at the Marion Narrows to monitor the transit of vessels and provide vision of current sea conditions.
It is the result of nearly twelve months work, planning and support from many organisations such as Jettech Networks, NBN Co, MAST, Tas. Police Marine and Rescue Services, Murdoch Clarke and many individuals. The TMR base operator has full pan, tilt and zoom control of the camera but it will normally be left in a default position covering the Narrows entrance. The public can view the camera feed via the TMR website (www.tasmaritime.com.au), just follow the prompts. As well as the live feed, a time lapse of the day’s activity can be viewed. Please be aware that the video you are watching could be delayed up to 15 seconds. An added benefit is that it will enable fishermen and surfers to view current conditions before leaving home thus saving a trip if conditions are unsuitable.
