NOTICE TO MARINERS
The following notice to mariners is published
for general information.
AUSTRALIA - VICTORIA
No. 255 of 2015
PORT OF ANDERSON INLET - ANDERSON INLET BAR WARNING
TO VESSEL OPERATORS WHO INTEND TO RISK BAR
CROSSING AT ANDERSON INLET’S OCEAN ENTRANCE
December 17, 2015 - effective immediately
DETAILS: A recent Marine Incident that occurred on the
Anderson Inlet ocean entrance (refer NtoM No
250(T) of 2015) has highlighted the risks
involved for vessel operators attempting to make
passage across the Anderson Inlet Bar.
Mariners are reminded that the ocean entrance to
Andersons Inlet is dynamic and continuously
changes in position and depth and can do so
over a very shor t period of time.
Bar Crossings are regarded as extremely
dangerous and can cause serious personal
injury or death when unfavorable environmental
conditions exist, including;
l Poor weather conditions with strong winds
making the bar entrance hard to distinguish
l Large swells created by recent weather events
that close off the bar entrance with breaking surf.
l The run of the ebb tide which lifts and shor tens
sea conditions on the bar increasing risk of
swamping or capsize.
l Poor visibility, which may include the position of
the sun relative to the vessels position when
attempting to cross the bar
l Changes in sea and swell conditions from the
time of depar ture to the time of arrival and on a
day to day basis. Sea conditions can change from
long distance weather events centered in the
Southern Ocean or Bass Strait
l The presence of other vessel operators
Passage through the entrance and bar should
only be attempted by experienced persons with
sound local knowledge and only at times of fair
weather, smooth sea conditions at higher water
with no influence from the ebb tide. Operating
vessels through the entrance and bar at times of
heightened risk should be avoided at all times.
Bar crossing advice and safety equipment
requirements can be found in the Victorian
Recreational Boating Safety Handbook. Vessel
operators should take extra care during vessel
equipment checks and conduct a safety briefing
There are no aids to navigation to guide vessel
operators through the Anderson Inlet entrance
or across the bar and the best available water
may be different from one day to the next.
Vessel operators are advised to take extra
precaution before and during any decision to
attempt a bar crossing taking into account the
advice previously described.
“If in doubt, don’t go out”

THE South Gippsland Shire Council’s capital works
program is $1.13 million behind where it should be at
this time of the year.
That’s a third behind the total expenditure on works
of $3.39 million that should have been completed by
It was among the details provided in the shire’s fi-
nance report from July to November, handed down at
the December 16 council meeting.
It also reveals that the shire is expecting to post a
$2.26 million surplus at the end of the financial year
which would be $3.03 million worse than the antici-
pated surplus of $5.29 million.
The shire notes in its report that the State Govern-
ment’s rate cap will adversely impact the shire’s sus-
tainability and “will need to be strategically managed as
part of the development of the 2016-17 Annual Budget
and Long Term Financial Plan”.
South Gippsland will not, however, be applying for an
exemption from the rates cap which this coming year
will be set at 2.5 per cent, as announced on December
