The Ramsar Convention encourages the development of three key documents for each Ramsar site:
- Ramsar Information Sheets - required at the time of nomination of a site to the List of Wetlands of International Importance, are to be updated every six years, or when there are significant changes in the site's ecological character.
- Ecological Character Descriptions - describe the ecological character of the site at the time of its listing as a wetland of international importance.
- Management Plans - used to formulate and implement planning so as to promote the wise use and conservation of wetlands.
For more information about these documents see the Ramsar documents page.
Along with the available site documents, additional information and resources on this Ramsar site are listed below. Please note that apart from the Ramsar Information Sheets, not all documents are currently available for every Australian Ramsar site.
