Our region

The Moreton Bay Region is a diverse area, spanning more than 2,037 square kilometres and boasting everything from rural townships and urban centres to coastal villages and thriving business precincts - We've Got it All.

Located between Brisbane City and the Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay is one of Australia's fastest growing urban regions with its population forecast to grow by over 40 percent to more than 645,000 by 2036. 

Moreton Bay has a strong and connected community that enjoys the benefits of close proximity to the Brisbane CBD and a lifestyle that's second to none.

The region offers some of South East Queensland's premier waterfront locations, pristine environmental areas, vibrant entertainment options and thriving cultural and community hubs. Residents enjoy access to award-winning medical, commercial, leisure, entertainment and residential precincts.

The Moreton Bay Region extends through Jinibara, Kabi Kabi and Yuggera traditional Country. Council respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of these lands, and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
