Your marine parks
Australian Marine Parks support people’s livelihoods and the Australian lifestyle.
The Australian, state and territory governments have established marine parks around the country, covering 3.3 million square kilometres or 36 per cent of our oceans.
Where are Australian Marine Parks?
Within Commonwealth waters – those over 5.5 kilometres from the coast – the Australian Government has established 60 marine parks, including the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
How do we manage marine parks?
Parks Australia manages 58 marine parks.
Management plans set out our approach to managing marine parks. There are six management plans – one for each of the five marine park networks (the North, North-west, South-west, South-east and Temperate East networks) and one for the Coral Sea.
