Getting a Mooring

There are two ways to obtain a mooring; either apply for a new one or acquire an existing one. Space for new moorings is very limited, with most bays closed due to lack of space. Acquiring an existing mooring means having a current mooring licencee sign their valid license over to you to put in your name.The method for doing this is on the back of the mooring licence itself.

Note: In order to take a mooring licence you must be eligible. This means you must have an active boat registered in your name and only have one mooring per boat owned. There is a $100 transfer fee. All transfers are subject to approval by the Department of Marine and Ports' Marine Services Officers

Before issuing an initial mooring licence we inspect the site to ensure that the proposed mooring poses no hazard to navigation or to other boats moored nearby.

Please visit our electronic mooring locator map to ensure your mooring has been mapped. In instances where you mooring does not appear on our map you may contact our offices to discuss. Only up to date licensed and decaled moorings are considered legal.
