Moreton Bay Marine Park

The Moreton Bay Marine Park consists of the waters of Moreton Bay, from Caloundra to the southern tip of South Stradbroke Island and extends three nautical miles seaward from Moreton Island and North and South Stradbroke islands.

Moreton Bay is one of the largest estuarine bays in Australia and sits in an ‘overlap zone’ where tropical and temperate species mix. The habitats found in the marine park include open ocean, sandy beaches, coral reefs, rocky shores, seagrass and sponge beds, mangrove forests, mudflats and sandbanks.

The current zoning plan for Moreton Bay Marine Park commenced on 1 March 2009.

Details of the zoning plan can be accessed via the Queensland Government Department of National Parks, Sports and Racing.
