Planning continues for the previously announced Mellish Reef DX-pedition scheduled for late March – early April, 2014.

Landing Authority:
Australia’s “Commonwealth Marine Reserve Operations Department” reviewed our DX-pedition project plan and requires that we follow their documented environmental protection regulations. Effective July 1, 2014 Mellish Reef becomes part of Australia’s new Coral Sea Marine Reserve proposal which implements additional restrictions to further protect the area’s ecology; we appreciate the Australian government’s cooperation and spirit of partnership in making this DX-pedition possible.

Mellish Reef is located in the Coral Sea, approximately 1,100 kilometers north-East of Brisbane, Australia. Currently number 24 on ClubLog’s Most Wanted List, Mellish Reef was last activated in 2009.
