Ahead of the NSW state election on 25 March 2023, the NSW Government caretaker period has commenced. Limited updates will be made to this website during this period.
Long Reef Aquatic Reserve was the first aquatic reserve declared in NSW.
Since 1980, Long Reef Aquatic Reserve has played an important role in protecting rocky shore plants and animals, and has been an important place for marine education and research.
The reserve is an outdoor classroom, living science research site and recreation hub. It is a home for fascinating marine animals and plants.
