Lots of people enjoying the open space on the weekend. Not quite enough water to be able to really enjoy the kayaking.

First kayak experience
May 2020 • Family
Shouted myself a Kayak for my birthday and had a paddle with my pooch. My partner and daughters also had a go. We loved it. Plenty of people out enjoying the beautiful weather but plenty of room and park looks a million $. Well done ICC on providing facilities for us to enjoy.

SPACIOUS AND POPULAR FAMILY FUN
Jan 2020
This is a popular spot for family gatherings and outdoor parties. There is space for everyone to set up under shade or bring their own shade, some with BBQ's are available. The Brisbane River runs through the area, which has been badly flooded in recent years, washing away infrastructures, but its rehabilitation has given improvements with adequate parking and an on site tearoom. Canoeing is possible in the river and children can swim with supervision. It is a wonderful place to hold large family gatherings.

Great for a Quiet Paddle
Mar 2020
A midweek visit for a paddle with the kayak proved to be very relaxing. Parking and launching are simple. There is parking adjacent to a boat ramp which provides easy access to the quiet clean Brisbane River. Yet to try the fishing but I am sure this will provide success. Plenty of play equipment to occupy the kids while you paddle and explore around. A small coffee show provides refreshments and a quite good menu including delicious homemade burgers.

Beautiful spot to canoe up from colleges to Mt Crosby wier
Jan 2020
All you could need, 4 car spots to unload your craft and put in the water, good parking above the boat ramp once unloaded, park bench and tables under shelter adjacent set down area. toilets a short walk from shelter, dog friendly water taps and great walking track around park.
Paddling up stream a pleasure of narrow deep tree lined fish and turtle viewed section opening to wide water passage with views of water bird life, black swan, kite, shag, ibis, pelican. Insect dragonfly and fish each being hunted..green banks with tree and cliff views. Such a pleasure to early morning paddle for a few hours, pack up then go to the cafe for coffee and cake:)

Quaint
Jan 2020 • Couples
Playing equipment would be good for children, lots of option. The cafe need to grow as limited range is offered and on the weekend the lines are quite long and wait time is extreme. Not the best place for swimming

Great for nature and outdoor activity
Jun 2019 • Friends
I go to Colleges mostly to paddle on my kayak. There is a boat ramp and picnic and toilet facilities. It is close to Ipswich and well worth a visit.

Cafe never open
Apr 2019 • Family
I have now been to Colleges on five occasions and have found that the cafe has been closed every time. Really suffers for lack of facilities
