Explore Minjerribah

Minjerribah has been home to the Quandamooka People for more than 20,000 years. They have a long relationship with the island and its living world which informs our current knowledge and understanding. More recently, scientists have also contributed to our understanding of the island.

North Stradbroke Island-Minjerribah lying just off Brisbane is famous for its magnificent surfing beaches and spectacular Humpback Whales swimming close to shore, but there is so much more to this ancient sand island’s natural world. This beautiful place is home to plants, wildlife and places not found anywhere else on earth.

Wetland Wonders

Home to internationally protected wetlands

Wetlands are rich ecosystems that are incredibly ecologically significant to life on earth.

Wetlands provide habitat for birds, turtles, crabs and other wildlife, and their dunes support unique vegetation communities, which in turn help maintain the integrity of the beaches and dunes.

Wetlands are natural solutions to tomorrow's problems

Wetlands have the potential to be a nature-based solution to clean water, food supply, disaster risk reduction, carbon storage and secure livelihoods.

Around 87% of global wetlands have been lost since the 1700s.
