With the Moreton Bay Marine Park on our doorstep, we share a home with an array of incredible yet sometimes elusive wildlife. From winter whale watching tours to summer cruises through Pumicestone Passage and the bay, you always have the opportunity to spot our marine life. In winter, the Moreton Bay Marine Park sees around 20,000 whales migrate through our waters not once but twice! In the warmer months, you’re more likely to spot seals, dugongs, dolphins and turtles! If you look to the sky, you may even see Ospreys and other local birds.
Do you own your own boat, Jet Ski, SUP board, kayak or other water vessels? Do you enjoy fishing? Unite the two and you’ve got a great day out on the bay already sorted! From Hays Inlet, a stunning part of the western fringe of the Redcliffe to Peninsula, to almost anywhere around Bribie Island, you can combine your two passions for a Moreton Bay Marine Park boating and fishing adventure! Just don’t forget to check the zoning plan to find out the restrictions.
