Newcastle tugs in action, image shot from the stern of the tug Hamilton, Sunday 3rd March, 2013. One group of tugs escorting a cargo ship out of the harbour while a second group of tugs making their way to the Kooragang col loader to pick up another coal export ship. The harbour water being coloured from recent heavy rain.
These tugs with their highly experienced and dedicated crews are a key element in the import/export operations of Newcastle Harbour, especially the coal industry of the Hunter Valley.
