Coastal and marine areas

Boasting some of the Great Barrier Reef’s most accessible inshore islands – The Keppels – our coastal and marine areas support robust tourism and fishing industries.

Our coastal areas encompass one of only five international wetlands of significance in Queensland, and host six of the world’s seven marine turtle species as well as Australia’s southern-most population of the Australian snubfin dolphin.
