Deeds of agreement
Most standard tourism and research permits do not require a deed of agreement. Permits the contain a structure/facility or are classified as medium to high risk may require a two or three party deed of agreement. This deed binds the permit holder to certain obligations, such as:
- Indemnifying the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority
- Maintaining adequate insurance
- Ensuring removal of structures and clean-up of the site of operations if directed
- The payment of a bond for structures other than vessel moorings.

The Great Barrier Reef is a hive of activity. If you're lucky enough to see a humpback whale from May to September, make sure you keep a safe distance.
