The new zoning better protects the entire range of plants and animals. To do your bit to help protect the reef, read our
Marine Park introductory user information and
environmental best practice guidelines that apply to this new zoning.
Zoning maps show the relative location of zones. Zoning maps are based on coordinates (points of latitude and longitude) to help with navigation. The 1:250 000 scale maps have the coordinate boundaries marked on the maps. Inshore, coastal features have also been used to help define and identify zone boundaries to help users as much as possible.
Zoning maps are distributed through local Community Access Points located along the GBR coast displaying this sticker.
Examples of Community Access Points include bait and tackle shops and boat chandlers. For a list of Community Access Points in your area download the
CAPS LIST (Format: PDF, 61kb) or free phone GBRMPA on 1800 990 177.
Please note: Although these products may display zoning to a high degree of mapping accuracy, they have no legal effect and are not a substitute for the zone boundary descriptions provided in Schedule 1 to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Zoning Plan 2003.
