Boondall Wetlands Walk

Boondall Wetlands © Caleb Gittins

Boondall Wetlands is accessed from the Gateway Motorway beyond Nudgee or by the road past the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. It has toilets and tables for morning tea as well as a good parking area (for those who arrive early). Walking is flat on reasonable tracks. Be prepared for mosquitoes. Please arrive before 6:10 so we can start at 6:15. Bring the usual things, water, morning tea, etc.

BQ has been conducting walks here for many years. I first led one here in 2001 but others visited long before me. Species numbers seem to be declining. 2018, 57 species.

PLEASE wear your name badge.
Anyone interested could extend their visit by driving to Nudgee Beach to walk the circuit marked on the track-map.
