  • The Moreton Bay is a bay located on the eastern coast of Australia 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) from central Brisbane, Queensland. It is one of Queensland's most important coastal resources. The waters of Moreton Bay are a popular destination for recreational anglers and are used by commercial operators who provide seafood to market. The Port of Brisbane coordinates large traffic along the shipping channel which crosses the northern section of the bay. The bay serves as a safe approach to the airport and reduces noise pollution over the city to the west of the runway. A number of barge, ferry and water-taxi services also travel over the bay. Moreton Bay was the site of conflict between the indigenous Quandamooka people and early European settlers. It contains environmentally significant habitats and large areas of sandbanks. The bay is the only place in Australia where dugong gather into herds. Many parts of the mainland foreshore and southern islands are settled. Moreton Bay is described as lagoonal because of the existence of a series of off-shore barrier islands that restrict the flow of oceanic water. The tidal range is moderate at 1.5–2 metres (4 ft 11 in–6 ft 7 in) in range. Moreton Bay has an average depth of 6.8 metres (22 ft). This shallow depth lets light filter through to the seafloor, allowing an array of marine plants to grow which support a diverse range of fauna. The bay itself covers 1,523 square kilometres (588 sq mi) and has a catchment area 14 times larger, covering 21,220 square kilometres (8,190 sq mi). The waters of the bay are mostly blue in colour. Western parts of the bay are sometimes tinted green from algae, brown from suspended sediments or yellow-brown from humic runoff. (en)
  • La baie Moreton ou baie de Moreton (Moreton Bay) est une grande baie sur la côte orientale de l'Australie à l'entrée de Brisbane, la capitale de l'État du Queensland. Elle doit son nom au capitaine James Cook. Il lui donna le nom de Lord Morton, le président de la Royal Society anglaise à l'époque mais son nom fut mal retranscrit. (fr)
  • Die Moreton Bay ist eine große Bucht an der Ostküste Australiens. Sie befindet sich am Korallenmeer, einem Randmeer des Pazifischen Ozeans, im Süden von Queensland und ist der Hauptstadt Brisbane vorgelagert. Im Norden wird sie durch die Sunshine Coast und im Süden durch die Gold Coast begrenzt. Durch die Moreton Bay führt die Zufahrtsroute zum Hafen von Brisbane. Für die Bewohner der Gegend bietet die Moreton Bay zahlreiche Möglichkeiten zum Wassersport und Angeln und ist ein beliebtes Naherholungsgebiet für die Bewohner der nahen Hauptstadt. Die Haupteinflugschneiße des Brisbane International Airport führt ebenfalls über die Moreton Bay und bietet somit eine Möglichkeit, den Flughafen ohne große Lärmbelästigung für die Einwohner der Hauptstadt und ihrer Nachbarorte anzufliegen.

  • Moreton Bay is een grote baai aan de oostkust van Australië, in het zuidoosten van de staat Queensland. Moreton Bay wordt gescheiden van de Stille Oceaan door Moretoneiland, North Stradbroke-eiland en South Stradbroke-eiland. De rivier de Brisbane en een aantal kleinere rivieren monden uit in Moreton Bay. De hoofdstad van Queensland, Brisbane, ligt 19 km stroomopwaarts aan de rivier de Brisbane. Moreton Bay is vrij ondiep en zandig, maar een vaargeul maakt scheepvaart naar Port of Brisbane mogelijk. (nl)
  • Il golfo di Moreton o baia di Moreton (in inglese: Moreton Bay) è un golfo della costa orientale australiana a 45 km da Brisbane nel Queensland. È delimitata ad est dalle isole di Moreton e North Stradbroke. È una delle risorse più importanti della costa. Il golfo è una meta famosa per i pescatori dilettanti ed è usata dagli operatori commerciali per rifornire di pesce il mercato locale. Il porto di Brisbane coordina il grande traffico lungo il canale adibito al trasporto che attraversa la sezione settentrionale del golfo.Il golfo è utile anche come approdo di sicurezza e riduce l'inquinamento acustico sulla città ad ovest della strada.Un certo numero di chiatta, traghetti e acqua-taxi servizi di viaggiare anche sulla baia.
