The process to nominate Moreton Bay for World Heritage listing started in 2017. The state government has budgeted $1.3 million to develop the nomination of North Stradbroke and Moreton islands as a World Heritage Area.
QYAC chief executive officer Cameron Costello said that it was uncommon for a listing process to be led by traditional owners.
The proposed area for listing was 3200 square kilometres covering North Stradbroke Island, Moreton Island and Moreton Bay. Retrieved from https://redlands2030.net/quandamooka-world-heritage-listing/
There is some talk of dredging in a World Heritage Listed Moreton Bay would be prohibited effectively meaning that that the Toondah Harbour redevelopment could not go ahead.
