Shared Use Mooring Systems (SUMS)

The Department of Transport (DoT) has implemented a Shared Use Mooring System (SUMS) for recreational vessels in order to increase access to recreational moorings and provide greater opportunity for people to safely enjoy the State’s most popular boating areas.

 The SUMS maximise the use of existing infrastructure within Mooring Control Areas, allowing vessel owners that do not have a mooring licence, the opportunity to use a participating mooring for short durations if not being used by the mooring licensee or authorised user.

 DoT has asked that we provide our members with SUMS information, as you may wish to purchase a Shared Use Mooring Authorisation sticker and use the system.
