Event description

Description

Jump aboard the Inspiration and discover the reefs on your doorstep!

Learn how to be a REEFSearcher and CoralWatcher with our marine biologists, and visit the amazing reefs that exist in inshore Moreton Bay (did you know they were there?)

Use drop cameras to survey deeper corals areas and get up close to fringing coral habitats around Green Island with underwater viewing buckets to identify the myriad of corals and critters that call Green Island home. Take home materials will enable you to use citizen science monitoring tools on your next visit to the reef.

We'll also check up on other factors important for reef health, like seagrass and mangrove habitats, and water quality measurements.


FAQs

Are there requirements for the event?

Participants ages 8 and older are welcome, those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Participants must be comfortable on boats; must wear close-toe shoes that are able to get wet; be sun smart; and, carry drinking water. Inspiration and Janjari are commercial vessels operated by Education Queensland and comply with Australian Maritime Safety survey requirements.

What is the boat like?

The MV Inspiration is a 12 metre aluminium catamaran operated by Moreton Bay Environmental Education Centre that can have 40 participants actively engaged on board on a variety of projects.


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Parking is available, but may be limited, so arrive early! There is a small toilet available on the vessel and toilets are available at the Bayside Park before you depart. We encourage you to use public transport and carpool where feasible!


Where exactly does the boat depart?

The William Gunn Jetty is located next to the Manly Pool (to the left of the Pool if you are looking out at the Bay). Walk down to the end of the cul-de-sac and you will see the Jetty entrance. The walkway to the pontoon for meeting the MV Inspiration is just past the Wynnum Manly Tourism & Visitor Information Centre on the left.
