Boondall Wetlands are located on the edge of Moreton Bay between Nudgee Beach, Boondall and Shorncliffe.
They include more than 1,000 hectares of tidal flats, mangroves, saltmarshes, melaleuca wetlands, grasslands, open forests and woodlands. They have a diversity of wildlife, including flying foxes, possums, squirrel gliders, frogs, reptiles and butterflies have an amazing variety of birdlife, including black-shouldered and brahminy kites, Australian kestrels, whimbrels, sandpipers, kingfishers and rainbow bee-eaters.
Boondall Wetlands Environment Centre in association with Brisbane City Council is offering some free guided walks in the next couple of months.
They all take off from Boondall Wetlands Environmental Centre and the address is 31 Paperbark Drive, Boondall. How is that for an attractive address!
It's a 30 minute drive from the City and you are in the middle of some significant wetlands which are so important to the migrating birds and sea life of the area.
Join a volunteer guide for a nature walk to discover the hidden treasures of Boondall Wetlands Reserve, and help celebrate the BrisAsia Festival. Learn some fascinating facts about the wetlands and their flora, and fauna; and find out why Boondall Wetlands Reserve and its "sister wetlands" in Yatsu-Higata Tidelands in Japan, are both crucial wetlands for the thousands of migratory shorebirds that travel between Asia and Moreton Bay each year.
Walks are usually held on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The maximum no is 15.
Participants are asked to bring appropriate foot wear, wear a hat, sun screen and insect repellant and bring water.
The dates for the forthcoming months are:
14th and 15th Feb
7th and 8th March
The walks all start at 9.30 am and finish at 11.30 am.
