Moreton Bay

Located North of Brisbane, the Moreton Bay region covers over 2000km2, the third largest local government area in Australia. The Moreton Bay region is a diverse area boasting rural townships, urban centres, coastal villages and thriving business precincts.

The Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land include the Jagera/Turrbal, Jinibara and the Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi peoples.

The waters of Moreton Bay are largely sheltered by Moreton, Stradbroke and Bribie Islands, creating a unique coastal environment for sea life including dugong, whales and turtles. Inland from the coast, the hinterland region boasts stunning scenery, including that of the D’Aguilar mountain range and Woodford.
