One Tree Island viewed from the air

The Byrne lab uses this unique and important facility for its on-going research. The island itself is a National Park and a separate permit is required for work on the rubble cay.

One Tree Island Research, a facility of the University of Sydney, provides a unique opportunity for long-term field studies in a site known to be free of other human disturbances. The research station provides easy access to study sites within the lagoon at any stage of the tide. Scientists involved in research within the as-of-right category must have a letter indicating this from their Accredited institution. Other research requires a permit from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA).
