Its located on the old dockyard site and is visible from Wharf Rd!

 

Those enthusiast that live near our coastline and waterways have listened to marine communications at least once I'm sure. I find monitoring the VHF marine band very interesting, you can hear the ships at sea requesting entering times and berthing instructions, pilot vessels, tugs and a whole heap more. The main channels used around the Newcastle area are 6, 8 , 9, 16, 73, and 67. Try scanning the whole band to catch all the activities, and remember the MSB (Maritime Services Board) can be heard on the GRN network. There is also a repeater on Mt Sugarloaf ,The channel, is 80 (161.625 mhz)this marine repeater is accessable from Forster in the North to Botany Bay in South.  We had one sailor come from Botany Bay just using a hand held on the repeater
