12 April 2021

Vision Australia Radio manager Conrad Browne speaks about our programing changes and new streaming services on a recent episode of ‘Talking Vision’.

Alongside the launch of new program guides across the Vision Australia Radio (VAR) Network on Monday April 12, we’re also pleased to announce that we have recently upgraded our online streaming services and now have eight VAR stations streaming online – Albury, Adelaide, Bendigo, Darwin, Geelong, Melbourne, Perth and Shepparton.

When you visit the home page on the VAR website you will see a drop down menu on the right hand side of the home page with each of the VAR services featured.

When you select a location you can then click on the ‘Listen Live’ button which will take you to the page hosting the online stream for each VAR service.

Please note that the Darwin, Mildura, Warragul and Warrnambool services are simulcasting other VAR services locally and are linked to one of the existing streams listed above.

You can also use your voice activated home speaker to listen to either VAR in Melbourne or Adelaide; just ask them to play ‘Vision Australia Radio’ and you’ll be prompted to choose either of these stations or it will commence immediately based on your location.
