Parks Australia invites expressions of interest for membership to our advisory committees for the Coral Sea Marine Park and the North, North-west, South-west, and Temperate East Marine Parks Networks. 

Australian Marine Park Advisory Committees (AMPACs) were established in 2019 to advise the Director of National Parks on the management of Australian Marine Parks (AMP), guided by AMP Management Plans (2018-2028). 

We’re seeking members who can provide advice and guidance for outcomes under one or more of our management programs: communication, education, and awareness; tourism and visitor experience; First Nations engagement; Marine science; assessments and authorisations; park protection and management and compliance. 

To ensure the committees deliver the best possible advice, we are looking for people with capabilities and experience across a diverse range of areas, including tourism, fishing, Sea Country values, marine transport, science, energy, infrastructure, conservation, governance, communication, and education.  

Applications close at 5pm AEST on Friday 8 September 2023. 

The expression of interest application, AMPAC Terms of Reference and Operating Procedures are on the Advisory Committee website.
