A terrific wildlife center and now a swimming and walking and riding area in and around Enoggera reservoir! There's three aspects to the place. First it is a QLD EPA (environment) HQ for the D'Aguilar range region. Secondly there is a wildlife centre there with a platypus and all sorts of aquatic life, a wombat, wallabies and kangaroos, etc. It... More

I can't believe I just found this place. It's like a private beach in the middle of nowhere. Probably best to down there during the week cause there isn't much shady space on the grass. There is also a really nice 5km walking track through the forrest which is shaded most of the way. The lurking goannas are huge.

The recent opening of the Enoggera Dam for all non power activities is the icing on the cake for this Wilderness facility located approx 10km from Brisbane CBD. Kayaking and similar activities,swimming & fishing along with a mini beach adjoining a grassy area ensure all ages can enjoy a natural environment at no cost.

Stopped there after a bush walk, the fee is quite small but it's a good chance to see a platypus feeding (check for feeding time, during our visit it was 14.00). The outdoor area is also worth a visit.

I always walk the Araucaria track here when I visit Brisbane. It's a 5 kilometer circular walk, mostly skirting round the reservoir, offering a fair amount of shade and a couple of benches on which to contemplate the well wooded areas adjacent to the water. Plenty of bird life and you'll be unlucky if you don't have some close encounters... More

The Corymbia Circuit is a short walk (1.5kilometres) starting from the Walkabout Creek Wildlife Centre. With more time available, it can be combined with Araucaria Track. Maps and helpful advice can be obtained from the information desk at Walkabout Creek Wild Life Centre. The Wildlife Centre at Walkabout Creek is a fantastic, very well designed venue, particularly useful and of... More

We took our German exchange student here for a quick look at some Australian wild life. Then we did the hour walk around the reserve. The amount of bird life was amazing, and even more so that it is just on the outskirts of Brisbane suburbia!

We celebrated a family birthday with a Sunday morning breakfast at this great, relaxed venue. We were seated out on a long table on the verandah, looking over at native animals and watching thousands of birds all around. Our party consisted of an age-range from 6 months old baby to some one their 80's. Everyone was comfortable and we had... More

The Wild Life Centre (which can be found by taking the exit into the Walkabout Creek Conference Centre) is a small wild life sanctuary but it is fantastic. With animals that we had never before seen on display including a spotted quoll and a platypus. It is by no means comparable to Australia Zoo or Lone Pine but neither is... More
