Moreton Bay Marine Park

Moreton Bay Marine Park

Moreton Bay Marine Park includes the waters of Moreton Bay, from Caloundra to the southern tip of South Stradbroke Island, extending three nautical miles seaward from Moreton Island and North and South Stradbroke islands. The Marine Park also incorporates the marine and coastal environments of the area, which include rocky shores, wetlands, coral reefs, mangroves, seagrass meadows and sandy beaches, provide seasonal resources for migratory and resident species.

Moreton Bay is special because it is one of the largest estuarine bays in Australia and sits in an ‘overlap zone’ where tropical and temperate species mix. The marine park is managed by the Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing (NPSR) as a multi-use marine protected area. Moreton Bay Marine Park was first declared in 1993 to protect its unique values and high biodiversity while still allowing people to use it.
