The present information document has been originally developed and released in 2011 by AMSA specialists working closely with the Coastal Pilot Working Group. Some very valuable contributions have been added by the pilotage stakeholders and pilots. The information that has been selected for the inclusion in the present publication in the "passage plan model" as per the Marine Order no. 54. This paper has been designed as a guide for conducting pilotage activities in Queensland areas. Note that it is not intended in any way to provide any formal legal advice and has been published only for reference. Mariners are expected to use the chartlets and other info provided in the book to support the voyage planning, navigating principles and common practices of seamanship. The content of this title has been arranged in four big chapters. The first chapter provides general information related to the pilotage, bridge resource management, management of the risks associated with coastal pilotage, draught and routes restrictions etc. The second chapter is dedicated to planning the chartlets and covers different areas. The third section, in turn, covers the uniform waypoints - inner route north/south, great north east channel and hydrographers passage. The last fourth chapter of the documents provides readers with a list of acronyms used throughout the publication.
