This alert applies to the following park:

In early 2022, a new coastal bar was cut through Bribie Island 2kms from the northern end of Bribie Island Recreation Area, separating the park into two sections.

This northern breakaway section of Bribie Island remains part of the Bribie Island National Park and Recreation Area. While the national park boundary remains at the high tide mark, the recreation area boundary extends down to the mean low water mark and moves with the accretion and erosion of the sand. Newly formed sandbars and vegetated dunes at this northern breakaway section fall within the recreation area boundary.

Boaties and mainland residents are reminded that this northern breakaway section is not suitable for dog walking.

All national park and recreation area regulations continue to be enforceable including dogs, fires and camping being prohibited from this section of the recreation area.

Rangers will be patrolling this area and can issue fines for anyone caught breaching park rules.

Please monitor park alerts on the department's website for updated information.
