    The adjacent waters of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park offer boating and fishing opportunities.

    Marine park zoning regulations protect the inter-tidal zone and waters surrounding Dryander National Park. Zoning regulations specify how you can use particular sites and the permits you might require. For detailed information on activities such as fishing and crabbing, consult the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority zoning map. Maps are available from Queensland Fisheries offices, bait and tackle shops, Queensland Parks and Wildlife (QPWS) offices and online at GBRMPA.

    Minimum size and maximum bag limits apply to popular fish species. Queensland fisheries legislation applies in zones where fishing is permitted. See Queensland Fisheries for more information.
