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

It is amazing what you can find in you own backyard. Quiet and small but the walking trail is easy and the dam is a surprise. Your own swimming hole and canoe space for yourself. Worth the trip, will go again

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
