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.

Moreton Island National Park and Recreation Area

Joint management arrangements are proposed for Mulgumpin’s national park and recreation area between the Quandamooka People and the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, which would extend on the successful joint management partnership already in place on Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island).

Visiting the island’s protected areas

Mulgumpin continues to offer an amazing national park sand island experience on south east Queensland’s doorstep, enabling ongoing recreation:

  • Camping and four-wheel drive tracks are open and accessible.
  • Camping and vehicle access permits continue to be readily available, and existing fees will still apply.
  • Existing camping and vehicle access permits are still valid. Bookings can still be made for the future and will apply regardless of any potential change to management arrangements.
  • Beach access is not affected by the native title claim.
