Outside of the above mentioned time slots, you will be able to hear all our regular programing, and programs taking a break will immediately resume following the Tennis on the 22nd of February.

For those tuning in to Vision Australia Radio across the country for the first time, we welcome you to our service and we hope you will consider listening to our diverse programing outside of our Australian Open broadcasts. The Vision Australia Radio Network operates to address the information needs of people who are blind, have low vision or a print disability.

600+ volunteers keep the service going strong, across 15 radio services nationwide, with AM radio services in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth and seven services in Regional Victoria.
