Replacement Radio Tower

VMR Southport is currently undertaking a project to replace the ageing and dilapidated Radio Aerial Tower at its Rescue Base. This Tower has stood for over 35 years, and is vital to providing marine radio communication to the thousands of vessels that transit the Gold Coast area annually, as well as those mariners who frequent the gorgeous waterways of this area. VMR Southport is the only 24 hour / 7 day marine radio operation in the Gold Coast area, and you can assist us in raising the $180,000 required for this project. . All donations over $2 are tax deductable.

GOLD COAST | Your Marine Getaway


Volunteer Marine Rescue Southport has been assisting troubled mariners in the Gold Coast region for nearly 50 years, providing assistance in both Search and Rescue operations and routine breakdown situations.

Based on the Southport Spit, on Queensland’s fabulous Gold Coast, VMR Southport is manned 24hours / 7 days a week, and with in excess of 900 Rescue and 500 training activations per annum, makes it the busiest Volunteer Marine Rescue Squadron in Australia.

With 4 modern, fully equipped, specialised Rescue vessels, operated by highly trained crew, VMR Southport offers a membership that is a must have cover, offering peace of mind and security whilst on the water. Check out the Membership Benefits page and sign up today.
