The Long Reef Aquatic Reserve was declared in May 1980 to protect inertial and sub tidal marine plants and animals
Long Reef Headland is located approximately 10km north of the entrance to Sydney Harbour. It is a tied island joined by a sandy spit to the former coastline. The 60 ha Aquatic Reserve includes several areas of sandy beaches and rocky foreshores.
The Reserve has been set aside for the protection of marine plants and invertebrates, therefore you can only observe. If you lift something to examine it, make sure that you put it back in the same place.
With the exception of Fin-Fish, you cannot collect or destroy and marine plants or animals. This includes the collection of empty shells and dead plants or animals
