Welcome to Bookings Online
As a permit holder, or authorised contact, you contribute directly to the protection of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park by ensuring that you operate according to your Marine Parks permit.
Your Marine Parks permit will state whether you need to book to:
• Access the Cairns, Hinchinbrook or Whitsundays Planning Areas. Most operators are able to book to a planning area for up to 50 days in any 365-day period.
• Access a Sensitive Location within the Cairns or Hinchinbrook Planning Areas. The number of bookings that can be made for a specific location on any one day varies.
• Access a designated cruise ship anchorage. Generally, only one cruise ship or large vessel is allowed at an anchorage at a time.
A booking provides tourism and cruise ship operations guaranteed access to Planning Areas and Sensitive Locations within Planning Areas and cruise ship anchorages for a specific period of time.
Bookings Online has been developed to provide you with a user-friendly, online platform to make and manage your bookings.
