WELCOME TO GREG JAMES MARINE PARK INTERPRETIVE AND EDUCATION CENTRE

Here is the website to fully engage you with the fascinating and awesome world of Our Coast! Under the waves, inter-tidal reefs, mangrove plantations, kelp-bed forests and coastal estuarine habitats are all part of the simply amazing marine world. But make no mistake - they are all under threat like never before – from things like overfishing, pollution, human impact and storm water discharges. Our Coast needs your help and this site is a small part of how to learn about what is happening and how you can and should make a difference. I mean, when it's all said and done, who wants to one day put their hand up and say/claim “I am the one to have caught the last fish".
