06 May 2024 / Port Kembla, Australia

Port Kembla anchorage is closed to shipping due to severe weather (high swell and strong winds) on 6 May 2024.

All vessels have been instructed to drift off port at a safe distance 12NM off the coast and monitor VHF radio channels 11 and 16.

The port remains open to harbour movements and may face some disruption with pilotage during this period as shipping will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
