The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) and the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) are the primary regulators for protecting the Great Barrier Reef. Our role is to set the standards necessary to provide certainty about where uses may occur, the type of activities allowed and the conditions under which activities may proceed. This is achieved by using a combination of management tools and approaches, including zoning, plans of management, permits, education, compliance and enforcement.
This online system allows you to apply for, and manage, Marine Parks permits issued jointly by GBRMPA and QPWS.
If you wish to apply only for a permit to access the Great Barrier Reef Coast Marine Park, Great Sandy Marine Park or Moreton Bay Marine Park, please visit the Queensland Government website.
Further information on the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority is available on our website.
Further information on the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service is available on their website.
Permits Online has been developed to provide you with a user-friendly, online platform to manage the full life cycle of your Marine Parks permits from application through to reporting requirements, updating vessel details and contacts.
