Resources and publications

We’ve developed a range of useful resources about the Great Barrier Reef and the Reef’s health and management that are suitable for a variety of interests — from school students studying the Great Barrier Reef to marine managers in other locations around the world who are seeking information about coral reef management.

Accessing information

Our public information unit can provide copies of free zoning maps and respond to general calls and emails for information. You can reach them on (07) 4750 0700 or via email

Journalists and film crews seeking interviews or filming opportunities should contact our media team.

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority's Information Services provides information systems, tools, collections and services.

It acts as the custodian to much of the agency's published material, which is available online through the Publications e-Library.

Public access to Information Services is by appointment only. You can discover a wealth of online information and imagery using these information systems:
