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.
Contact the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority on 1800 990 177 or (07) 4750 0700 for more information.
