RMR

Listen Live

Radio Margaret River (RMR) is your new local internet radio station based in Margaret River. It’s the first of its kind in the South-West.

RMR has been created by a local group of talented, skilled volunteers; passionate about music and community connection in the Margaret River Region.

Our objective is to provide you with local, quality audio programming that is entertaining, informative and uplifting.

We’re here to make you smile.

Our aim is to support local music, arts and community groups. We’ll support local tourism and business interests in the region.

We’ll be the voice of the community, your voice.

You can listen to our live stream and on demand.

However…

To achieve these goals we need our community to back us. You can support us in a number of ways. 

We are a Not-for-Profit association, incorporated in December 2019.

We rely on the generosity and commitment of the community we serve.
