It is some time since BQ has had a walk at Berrinba Wetlands. This area has a large lake fed by a creek so there are several habitats which should provide a range of species. Have a look at the eBird hotspot at https://ebird.org/australia/hotspot/L4991025 to see what has been seen recently. There is a sealed track around the lake, and it is easy walking and mostly wheelchair accessible. We will do the Greater Wetland Walk which, with a couple of side-tracks is approx. 3 km. A map can be found at https://www.logan.qld.gov.au/downloads/file/341/berrinbawetlandswalkways.
Berrinba Wetlands consist of a series of man-made lakes along Scrubby Creek, resulting from sand-mining operations after World War II. These lakes have remained largely untouched since 1990 but in recent years they have been developed by Logan City Council with 8.5 km of walkways in 80 ha of natural bushland. The interpretive centre area has picnic and BBQ sites and toilets. There are high level bridges over the major creeks.
Please meet at the Interpretive Centre in Wayne Goss Drive at 7.00 a.m. Bring morning tea, a chair, water, sunscreen, insect repellent and hand sanitiser. Morning tea will be back at the starting point.
