Australian Marine Parks

Australian Marine Parks logo

Australia is surrounded by magnificent oceans and a marine environment that’s the envy of the world.

Establishing marine parks helps conserve and protect marine species and their habitats.

Our marine parks also provide places for people to watch wildlife, dive, and go boating, snorkelling and fishing. Importantly, they create jobs in industries like fishing and tourism, and provide us with food and energy.

That’s why the Australian Government has established 60 marine parks around the country.

Have your say on how we will manage Australian Marine Parks over the next 10 years.
