Vessel owners in the region can become supporters of QF6 by contacting us at the base or emailing marineassist.qf6@coastguard.com.au

Please mention Supporter Member Application in the header of the email and we will send you the required information.

Your support allows the volunteers to provide the 24/7 service to you and your community, so even if you don’t think you’ll need our help maybe someone you know will?


We are always looking for willing volunteers to learn new skills and help the community. In return for your time will can offer national accredited training and the chance to put it into practise on a regular basis. All we ask is that you can commit to a minimum number of shifts per month, so that you remain current and effective.

We need staff for radio watch, boat crew and administration, with the only requirement being that you are healthy and keen to learn.

If being part of QF6 interests you, please email membership.qf6@coastguard.com.au and mention Volunteer member in the header. We will be in touch and get you along to a recruit night.
