The China–Australia Migratory Bird Agreement is a treaty between Australia and China to minimise harm to the major areas used by migratory birds which migrate between the two countries. Towra Point Nature Reserve plays a role in the agreement, being an area in Australia used by migratory birds. CAMBA was first developed on October 20, 1986 and came into force on September 1, 1988.

There is also a Japan–Australia Migratory Bird Agreement and a Republic of Korea–Australia Migratory Bird Agreement. Towra Point is also a Ramsar wetland site (a protected wetland of international importance).
