Lytton Wader Roost and Wynnum Boardwalk

© Caleb Gittins

Directions: To get to Lytton, drive east along Lytton Rd following the signs to the Port of Brisbane, follow Pritchard St from the turn off to Fort Lytton National Park, turn left into Wynnum North Rd, continue to the end of the road and park in the car park. The Wader roost can be found be by following the path opposite the entrance to the car park. This is best at high tide.

Asian Dowitcher have been seen here along with the normal waders.

Wynnum Boardwalk is easily reached by following the path to the right and going into the mangroves (insect repellent is recommended). You can also enter via Granada St. or park at the northern end of Wynnym North esplanade near the Bowls Club, and walk north to the Boardwalk (UBD 143 H15). Collared Kingfishers and Mangrove Gerygones are always here.
