Carter Bay Conservancy
About This Conservancy
Carter Bay Conservancy was established as part of government’s land use decision in the Central Coast planning area. This conservancy protects an open, south-facing bay, with an extensive estuary. The southern, deeper marine areas are important for Dall’s porpoises and of moderate importance for killer and humpback whales. Carter Creek is an important salmon stream.
A notable feature is the wreck of the “Ohio” dating to 1909. The wreck is a popular diving site.
Conservancy Size: 462 hectares – 310 hectares of upland and 152 hectares of foreshore.
Date Established: May 5, 2007
