The University of Queensland’s Moreton Bay Research Station is located at Dunwich on North Stradbroke Island. The station is open certain days of the year for various open days and lectures for both the public and students.
Being so close to one of Australia’s largest coastal cities gives researchers the opportunity to study the human impact on Moreton Bay. The Moreton Bay Research Station prides itself on offering a world-class undergraduate field course and also in the promotion of marine science and the cultural understanding of the Quandamooka (Moreton Bay) people.
The Research Station also holds yearly themed open days to showcase the work done by the University of Queensland and the merits of individual researchers. These open days include guided tours of the station and foreshores, talks, sausage sizzles and and interactive displays such as touch tanks, aquaria and microscopes.
Tour options are available by appointment.
