VMR Midge Point

About VMR Midge Point

VMR Midge Point operates from Laguna Quays, which is situated between the Whitsunday Islands and Mackay on the western side of Repulse Bay (aptly named).

We do not maintain a radio watch.

For assistance, VTS in partnership with other squadrons, maintain a 24 hour listening watch on VHF radio channel 16.

If in phone range the QLD Police service should be your first point of contact.

Masters should be advised that a fee applies to operations that are not of a life threatening nature.
