Wonderful place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle. It feels like you're a million miles away from the city, but it's only about 25-30 minutes drive. And it's not too touristy. There are lovely, gentle bush walks around the lake and you can see native animals without paying an exorbitant entry fee.

This is the place we always take overseas visitors. The visitors centre is modest but informative and the staff are always very helpful. The animals in the wildlife centre include a platypus, a quoll, several pademelons, a wombat, reptile and bird species and some grey kangaroos outside. There aren't that many places to see platypuses (the David Fleahy wildlife centre... More

Wonderful way to while away half a day with young children (8&9yo). Fantastic 5k FREE bush walk with some nice water views so close to the city! Reservoir can be canoed upon and swum in although wet suits were clothing choice for today's warm winter morning! Super opportunity for young children to see some kangaroos, snakes, resident wombat and platypus... More

A lovely sunny 22c winter day in Brisbane. We decided on an active day and the kids put on their runners. It was great to get the kids away from the electronics!! We packed sandwiches, fruit, a few chocolate biscuits for a treat, some cracker biscuits and water bottles filled of course. The national park was easy to find 20... More

Whilst the surroundings are picaresque the visitor centre and function area are quite dated. Looking forward to the redevelopment, which I have seen plans for.

This spot is deceptive as you don't realise from the street what lays in waiting. There are some fabulous walks around the reservoir banks with lots of birds. There is also a visitors centre and tearoom in this beautiful setting.

On the north western edge of brisbane in the foothills of mt nebo walkabout creek is great visitor information centre that gives you with a fantastic overview of brisbane forest park. There is a great short walk and a cafe that is built to give you the feel that you are sitting in the treetops.

The visitor centre, native animal display and café all add to the walking track, giving an all round day experience. The spotted quoll is my children's favourite with the platypuses a close second.

We live near Walkabout Creek but have never visited before, we spent an enjoyable few hours visiting the wildlife centre ($6.50 per adult) and doing some surrounding walks. It is a small wildlife centre however i think for the price it is great. I especially loved seeing the platypus and wombat! A fun morning out :)

Attended a wedding reception at the function centre recently that was great & decided to take the g-kids back to see the animals. Great little wildlife experience in the suburbs. Ranger show was good for the older kids but under 5's get bored easy as all they want is to see & touch something not really learn about fires etc.... More
