Zoning Plan remake and review

The remade Marine Parks (Moreton Bay) Zoning Plan 2019 came into effect on 1 September 2019.

Expert advisory panel

The Panel's recommendations, which were used to guide the development of the revised zoning plan, included:

They are based on world standards in marine reserve design, and fulfil Queensland's obligations under a number of state, national and international agreements and pieces of legislation.
