Popular playground and pond
After a quick internet search on where to feed ducks in Brisbane, Capalaba Regional Park was by far the the most popular choice. So with stale bread in hand, we headed east.


Capalaba Regional Park and All Abilities Playground is one of the best parks in south east Brisbane, if not the best. Situated on fourteen hectares of bushland, the park includes two large lagoons linked by pathways, a popular playground for children of all abilities, and even an off-leash dog park.




The park and playground is well spaced out, terraced over three levels with easy access to each area. Barbecues, shelters, and toilets sit atop the play areas, near the car park. The next level includes a large play structure with slides, shops, and tunnels. There's also a timber fort for younger children and a flying fox for older ones. The lower level has a Liberty Swing (wheelchair accessible), large climbing net, totem maze, musical forest, and more.

The lagoons are the best feature of the park, in my opinion, with ducks, turtles, and eels. Located just beyond the safely fenced playground, the lagoons are connected by cycle paths and dotted with benches and picnic tables. After the kids have had a play, enjoy a picnic in this peaceful setting and feed the pond dwellers.



Capalaba Regional Park is located on Pittwin Road North, behind Bunnings.

No no no ! Please don't feed the ducks. Especially not bread which can kill them. If you absolutely must feed them, then gthaw frozen peas or corn that has been fully thawed out. No bread. For more info please see http://www.duckrescuenetwork.org/duck_care.html
