Local Marine Advisory Committees - Townsville
Agriculture, Water and the Environment
Twelve Local Marine Advisory Committees operate along the Great Barrier Reef catchment. Representing community interests from Cape York in the far north to the Burnett region in the south, these advisory committees provide an avenue for local communities to discuss areas of concern directly with the Authority. The committees also have input into the management of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and undertake activities that contribute to its long-term protection. Each advisory committee meets at least five times a year. Committee members are appointed for a three-year term. The current term is 1 July 2018 - 30 June 2021.
