Have your say on new public moorings and reef protection markers in the Great Barrier Reef

The Queensland Government has announced additional funding for marine infrastructure in the Great Barrier Reef and is seeking your feedback to help prioritise locations for this infrastructure. 

The new infrastructure will build upon a current network of over 200 public moorings and reef protection markers in place along the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). The Queensland Government is committed to expanding this network by installing additional public moorings and reef protection markers over the next 18 months. Responses provided by March 2018 will be used to inform infrastructure locations in the southern GBR (primarily around the Capricorn Cays), and responses provided by August 2018 will help prioritise locations in the northern GBR (between Townsville and Lizard Island). In assessing priorities, we are considering the following:

In assessing priorities, we are considering the following:

  • location
  • the nature of the seabed (e.g. seagrass or coral coverage)
  • the nature of recreational boating in the area
  • the nature of commercial boating in the area (including tourism)
  • the location of sites of cultural or historical significance
  • distribution of infrastructure across the region
  • ease of access for infrastructure maintenance
  • costs and construction feasibility

Stakeholder and community input is a vital part of this project, so your feedback on this proposed marine infrastructure is important.
