Moreton Bay Research Station can accommodate a total of 96 people in a variety of accommodation styles from bunk rooms to a fully furnished self-contained house and cabin. Floor plans are available to help you plan your accommodation requirements (ground floor, first floor). Internet connections are available in all rooms.

Researchers and other visitors in small groups may prefer the comfort, separation and privacy offered by the Researcher House and Cabin. Located on the waterfront and directly across the street from the research station, the Researcher House and Cabin are both fully self-contained. The on-site bunk rooms are ideal for large groups.
