Minnippi Parklands

Directions: Turn off Wynnum Road into Station Road West.
Drive to the end of the road past the Aero Club and there is a parking lot
overlooking the lake. The area is particularly good for rails which can be seen
in early morning on the water’s edge as well as other water birds. A scope is
useful here. There is a pleasant loop walk round the lake.

You can also enter Minnippi Parklands from Creek Rd too – very handy for
Southsiders. From Meadowlands Road turn into Preston St & park off Kate St or in
any of the designated parking places along Meadowlands Road(UBD 162 A20) – short,
pleasant walk over Bulimba creek to the lake at the Wynnum Road end of the park.
