The adoption of Australia's Oceans Policy in 1998 was a landmark development in Australia's move towards integrated ecosystem planning and management for the marine environment. It represents the dawning of a new era for Australia's oceans and came at the end of a significant decade during which Australia ratified the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea * and for the first time proclaimed a contiguous zone and exclusive economic zone plus extended its territorial sea and began the process of asserting new limits to the continental shelf. Australia commences the new millennium with its basic ocean legal regime in place and the 1998 Oceans Policy to provide for management of its maritime zones. This article will overview the legal framework for integrated oceans and coastal management in Australia, assessing the national and international regimes, and the impact of the Oceans Policy on that regime and the challenges which need to be resolved.
