From the stunning D’Aguilar Range, to the lush seagrass meadows of the Pumicestone Passage, the Moreton Bay Region is home to a diverse range of environmental and geographical wonders. Ancient and modern landscapes host flora and fauna that thrive within their unique ecosystems.

Bribie Island is the smallest and most northerly of the three great sand islands of Moreton Bay, the others being Moreton Island and Stradbroke Island. The formation of the island was complex. It was the result of sea level changes that occurred during the recent geological past. This resulted in a strand plain, a broad belt of coastal sand dunes, being separated from the mainland by the inundation of Pumicestone Passage.

The picturesque, mountainous backdrop to the Moreton Bay Region, (and Brisbane) is the hilly D’Aguilar National Park. One of the largest national parks in South East Queensland, it is the closest to Brisbane. The park features a diverse range of ecosystems from eucalypt woodlands to lush subtropical rainforests, resulting in a high biodiversity with approximately 469 species of vertebrate fauna and over 1,150 species of vascular flora.

Hidden in Plain View explores the nooks and crannies of this beautiful region, and will inspire exploration of much-loved sites and best-kept secrets. Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
