Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at

Perfect place for little people to run ragged and sleep well

Tarradarrapin Creek Wetlands is located in the suburban setting of Birkdale in the Redlands Coast precinct of Brisbane. The area is only small being 13 kilometres in length, though the green space is like an oasis in the desert. According to Redland City Council website, the Tarradarrapin Wetland is part of the Moreton Bay Ramsar site and the creek continues to support the native water rat, native fish such as carp gudgeons, and is of international significance as an important habitat for migratory birds.

Taking the route to Sunnybay Drive, you will come across a little reserve that my little people loved over the recent school holidays.

The playground equipment is modern and shaded by eucalyptus trees which must be a blessing in summer. Bordered by native vegetation and grasses along the waterline, older children would have great fun looking for tadpoles and mosquito fish.

There is a bench seat at one end of the parkland as well as a picnic table down the other end, which is supported by a tap with running water for both humans and canines.

It's not a large reserve though younger kiddies will love to run amongst nature, chasing the water hens and ducks. Off-street parking is available and as a quiet thoroughfare, I had few concerns about cars and kids, even though the area is not gated.

Tarradarrapin Creek Wetlands Reserve proves that sometimes less is more.
