This area has been rehabilitated by the local council and community groups, however, the traditional custodians are the Indigenous people of the Yugambeh tribe. Evidence of past activity of the Yugambeh can still be observed within the wetlands, specifically the scarred trees.

Signage and maps of the various trails are easily visible from all entrances, along with information of the habitats and animals that reside in the area. Overall, more than 200 native Australian bird species have been recorded in the wetlands.

Both the Melaleuca Boardwalk (150m) and Bird Hide Walk (230m) are pram and wheelchair-friendly. Wide concrete and boardwalk-style wooden paths guide visitors around a large lagoon.

The Marsh Bird Walk (500m) and Riverwalk (1km) allows visitors to venture further into the wetland area, along relatively flat but gravel pathways.

The Riverwalk is particularly impressive, following the banks of the Logan River and finishing at the Wetlands entrance.
