As of November 2020 the Quandamooka people were formally recognised as traditional owners of Moreton Island (known as Mulgumpin).
Moreton Bay’s Quandamooka people include three clans of Aboriginal people; the Ngugi people of Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) and the Noonuccal and Gorenpul people of North Stradbroke Island, known as Minjerribah.
QYAC will now be managing the National Park alongside our friendly Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services. You’ll see there are now 2 types of rangers on the island, QYAC and Queensland Parks and Wildlife. They will both be carrying out compliance (ensuring everyone has vehicle access permits and camping permits) and helping upkeep the island.
Booking Vehicle Access and Camping Permits
Well, it’s business as usual, you need to get your vehicle and camping permits prior to travel, but you now get them through the Mulgumpin website here.
We are still an agent for National Parks, so if you would like to save the hassle of visiting both websites, just add your vehicle access permit on when you book your vehicle. We’ll then book your permit in the Mulgumpin system, and you’ll get emailed your permit.
We also still have permit stickers on the Micat, so don’t stress if you don’t have access to a printer, you can grab a sticker and write your booking number on the sticker.
If you would like to discuss your camping permit or vehicle access permit, contact QYAC directly on (07) 3415 2816.
Bear with us while we transition from National Parks booking system to the new Mulgumpin booking system, we’re still working out a few kinks!
