I’m planning to bring the boat up to the island in the coming months since I obtained an approval for installing a mooring off the island some time ago. I’ve been getting the run around from council regarding the location of the mooring but it seems to be sorted now. It’s going to be really convenient having the boat about 30 metres off the island and I’ll be able to sit on my front deck and see the boat.
Moreton Bay has had some serious damage to seagrass over the years and this affects dugong, turtles and lots of marine creatures who rely on the seagrass as a food source and habitat.
It is now compulsory for moorings to be seagrass friendly and below is a video explaining this new type of mooring. These are very popular now around Stradbroke Island which is now largely an environmentally protected marine park.
