Boaters to keep clear of Fireworks display on Lake Macquarie    
Wed, 23 Jan 2013

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has granted an exclusive use of aquatic licence for the safe staging of a fireworks display on Lake Macquarie on Saturday - Australia Day.

RMS Maritime Principal Manager North Sonia McKay said boaters should keep clear of Lake Macquarie at Speers Point from 8pm to 9.30pm.

'This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of a fireworks display organised by Lake Macquarie City Council,' Ms McKay said.

'The exclusive use area will be in a radius of 150 metres around the firing position at Speers Point and marked by red floats.

'For safety reasons, skippers should avoid this area as it will be restricted for the event and patrolled by club and control vessels,' she said.

Ms McKay said vessels would not be permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by a boating safety officer or a police officer.
