The Moreton Bay Region and its Narrative


The Moreton Bay Region takes in three key areas – Caboolture, Redcliffe and Pine Rivers. These areas came together after being amalgamated into the Moreton Bay Regional Council which was formed in 2008, making it the third largest local government area in Australia behind Brisbane (the capital of Queensland) and the Gold Coast.

Three other local government areas neighbour the Moreton Bay Region including Brisbane (southern boundary), the Sunshine Coast (northern boundary) and Somerset Region (western boundary). However, the eastern boundary is met by the Coral Sea.

And this is part of what makes the Moreton Bay Region one of South-East Queensland’s most diverse areas, spanning more than 2037 square kilometres from Samford and Arana Hills to Redcliffe, Bribie Island, Caboolture, Dayboro, Woodford and Mt Mee. The coast to the hinterland.

With this diversity, comes a plethora of employment opportunities from small businesses in a range of industries, to large employers such as the Moreton Bay Regional Council.

Along with employment opportunities, the Moreton Bay Region has sustained continued growth since 1933 with a population of about 11,900, increasing to a population of about 389,600 as of the last census taken in 2011.
