I have lived on the northside of Brisbane for over 20 years, and this city still amazes me with it's revelations.

I have driven through Caboolture on many occasions and passed these beautiful lakes, but have never turned the car into its entrance. So this time I decided to and wow, these are some of the prettiest walks and lakes that you will find anywhere.
Centenary Lakes

I decided go to for a 10 minute stroll with my camera and take a few shots. There is a tired looking map of the area, but has all the locations and activities well marked. This walk turned into over an hour and I was amazed at what this park had to offer.

During the 2011 floods, these lakes and parks were devastated with water over two metres across the entire site. To walk the park now, you would never know unless, like I did, bump into a local that described what could be seen.

The locals and the council pulled together to rebuild and clean up the park. All I can say is, thank you.

The park has paved walkways around the lakes and gardens. Dotted along the paths are permanent exercise equipment for those with fitness in mind.

Free outdoor Gym.

There is a fully covered play area with some fantastic equipment for the kids, that is fully fenced to keep them in. Seating is dotted all over the park to rest or just take in the views. Gas BBQs are available with covered eating areas.

There are four designated wedding areas within the park, all with spectacular backdrops off the lakes, rainforest, waterfalls, and bridges over streams.

Lakes and Bridges

The lakes have little islands throughout as bird sanctuaries. These Islands attract a wide variety of waterbirds, but mostly ducks that are happy to be feed your stale or fresh bread.

Situated in the heart of Caboolture, this is a hidden jewel that Brisbane residents should experience.


Centenary Lakes is also home to some great sporting activities that I will review over the coming days.
