Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) protected area management
The Quandamooka People are First Nations custodians of lands and waters within parts of Moreton Bay.
In 2011, the Federal Court recognised the Quandamooka People’s native title rights and interests over Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island). Quandamooka native title was recognised for Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) on 27 November 2019.

Protected area management partnership

- planning and operations

- pest management
- management of cultural heritage and visitor experience, and more.
