Moreton Bay

Moreton Bay, approximately 80 km long from north to south and 25 km at its widest point, lies between the mouth of the Brisbane River and the barrier islands comprising Moreton, North Stradbroke and South Stradbroke. The bay narrows at South Stradbroke, where there is a cluster of islands that turn the bay into channels and passages.
