Australia's search and rescue region

We have a large search and rescue region which covers our land mass, and large areas of our surrounding oceans.

Our search and rescue region covers the Australian continent and large areas of the Indian, Pacific and Southern Oceans as well the Australian Antarctic territories.

This region is nearly 53 million square kilometres (one tenth of the Earth’s surface) and borders the search and rescue regions of 10 other countries.
