Cape York eastern basins

Cape York eastern basins extend from the Jacky Jacky Basin in the north to the Endeavour and Normanby basins in the south. These basins and Great Barrier Reef coastal waters have recently been the subject of a water quality improvement plan (WQIP) prepared by Cape York Regional NRM Ltd in collaboration with stakeholders.
