Nautical Chart AUS 824 Penrith Island to Whitsunday Island (2014)
The Australian Hydrographic Service was established, and assumed responsibility for hydrographic surveys in Australia, in 1920. In 1946, Cabinet decided that the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) would maintain the national responsibility for hydrographic surveying, nautical charting and the provision of hydrographic services.
RAN is responsible for meeting Australia's obligations to provide hydrographic services as required by the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS). Its traditions and methods take their origins from those of the Royal Navy and the pioneers of hydrography. These include names synonymous with Australian history such as; James Cook, Matthew Flinders, William Bligh, Phillip Parker King - all hydrographers; all dedicated to science, exploration and the safety of life at sea.
