MBMP Artificial Reefs and GPS marks

The Moreton Bay Marine Park artificial reefs have finally been completed. They vary significantly in composition, with the hull of a 24m ex tuna boat, rocks, pipes, reef balls, fish caves and fish box clusters making up the materials from which they are made. Once again we have grouped together the GPS coordinates to make everyone's life that much easier. These sites should improve over time as they develop natural growth and become much more attractive to fish.

The following positions are collated from the DERM website who have as usual used GDA coordinates. From there we have weaved our usual magic and assumed a WGS84 datum which makes for approximately a half metre error, significantly less than the error of most widely available GPS units. You can manually take individual points or download the .gdb file. This file can be used in Mapsource to upload the GPS points directly to any Garmin GPS via usb.
