The Mariner's Handbook for Australian Waters (formerly the Australian Seafarers Handbook) is an official nautical publication providing mariners with a description of the Australian physical and jurisdictional maritime environment.

It is a first stop reference for international mariners and is popular with Australian commercial mariners because it combines important maritime information from various Australian government agencies under the cover of one nautical publication.

It contains much of the textual information that relates to the features depicted on navigational charts but is too detailed to be shown, including:

  • Seabed characteristics, tides & currents, sea names and shipwrecks.
  • The regional climatic environment.
  • Marine Protected Areas, Regulations and responsible agencies.
  • Major Australian Maritime Legislation and Regulations, and responsible agencies.
  • Buoyage, Navigation Aids, Coastal Pilotage, Torres Strait and GBR Shipping Routes, Accident and Incident Reporting.
  • Maritime Safety Information, Meteorological Broadcasts, Warnings, Search and Rescue.
  • Ship Reporting Systems - AUSREP and REEFVTS Ship Reporting Systems.
  • Maritime Security, Customs, Biosecurity, Quarantine, Immigration and Military information.
  • Australian trading ports
