Our Moreton Bay

Our Moreton Bay region is an amazing place located in the heart of South East Queensland.

Our region has been home to the Kabi Kabi, Jinibara and Turrbal peoples for thousands of years. Today it is home to many communities from a wide range of cultural backgrounds and welcomes visitors from all parts of Australia and the world. 

With a population nearing 500,000 and a land area of more than 2,045 square kilometres, we are one of the largest and fastest growing council areas in Australia. Over the next 20 years, an additional 200,000 people are expected to call our Moreton Bay home.

A region of natural beauty, it boasts access to the iconic waters of Moreton Bay (the region’s namesake) and the D’Aguilar mountain range. We have extensive waterways, wetlands and bushland corridors with an abundance of wildlife, much of which is of national and international significance.
