Family owned and run since 1970

The Navigation Centre services the commercial shipping industry with charts, nautical publications and other requirements as dictated by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA). As well as serving a large commercial client base, the needs of other boaties (yachts and power boats alike) are met with everything from navigation charts, parallel rules, barometers, magnetic compasses, captains hats to key rings and everything in between.

The topographic map user is also well catered for with scales of 1:25,000(limited stock available)  1:50,000   1:100 000  1:250 000 and  1:1,000,000 available as printed paper maps.  The 1:25,000 Memory Map DVD is also available in store.

Flags of all nations including code flags for ships and courtesy flags for boats are a very popular item as only top quality bunting flags are supplied.

Gift lines with a nautical theme are also a popular item for the person who can be difficult to buy for.  And yes, you can purchase a "Gift Voucher" for that hard to buy for person...
