Paddock to Reef


The Paddock to Reef Integrated Monitoring, Modelling and Reporting Program (Paddock to Reef program) is a collaborative program designed to collect and integrate data on agricultural management, catchment indicators and loads, and the health of the Great Barrier Reef.

Paddock to Reef (P2R) data is collected and reported across six reef regions in the Great Barrier Reef catchment area – from the Burnett-Mary region through to Cape York.

Jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland governments, the Paddock to Reef Program also involves collaboration with industry bodies, regional natural resource management groups, landholders and research organisations.

This program tracks the work of the many stakeholders by monitoring progress towards reef targets in the Reef 2050 Water Quality Improvement Plan.
