Australian Marine Parks

Research and monitoring is critically important to help us successfully understand and manage marine parks.

We encourage research in marine parks to improve our understanding of marine systems, habitats, ecosystems and values.

Working with us

We’re allowing research in all zones within marine parks. You will need to apply for a permit and let us know the results of your research.

It’s exciting that most research voyages to deeper, less visited waters result in the discovery of new species.
