Report

There are 14 Australian Marine Parks off the coast of Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania, covering 388,464 square kilometres. Together they make up the South-east Network. These marine parks include striking features such as underwater canyons and mountains, as well as the diverse marine life associated with them, some of which is new to science and found nowhere else in the world. – Parks Australia

The South-east Network spans the shallow (<30 metres) to hadal (>6,000 metres) depth zones, with the majority of the Network (65%) falling within the abyssal zone (4,000-6,000 metres). [View on map]
