Sandy Camp Road Wetlands Reserve

Sandy Camp Wetlands Reserve © Caleb Gittins

Directions: These wetlands are in Sandy Camp Road at Wynnum West, opposite Iona College. Entry to the site is a car park near a playing field that provides access to the various tracks. Another option is a little further west along the road where a small gate provides access to a path that leads to an observation platform over one of the ponds. The site has a mixture of sealed and unsealed tracks. The various paths and ponds at Sandy Camp Road are worth investigation for the variety of water birds. Spotless and Baillon’s Crake, as well as Black and Black-backed Bittern have been regularly reported at the site. As well as waterbirds, in an open field in the eastern part of the site is a nesting platform used by a pair of Osprey; a variety of bush birds can also be seen.
