An easy but lengthier walk or cycle through the Boondall Wetlands to the Anne Beasley Lookout.

This heavily trafficked path starts at the Boondall Wetlands Environment Centre.

The walk/cycle involves mostly concrete paths, with some lovely wooden boardwalks and bridges.

The track passes through the wetlands with a number of vegetation changes, before sidling beside Nundah Creek and eventually crossing over it.

The track than passes through an open plain before arriving at Anne Beasley Lookout. The lookout is located beside the pathway and provides great views of the wetlands and Moreton Bay.

There is also the option to continue on from the lookout to Nudgee Beach, while cyclists can link this path to other bikeways to extend their ride.

At times the walk can be very loud, due to its proximity to the motorway, however it is still a pleasant walk/ride.

Track: The walk consists of concrete paths, wooden boardwalks and bridges. It is well-signed and easy to follow.

Difficulty: The walk is suitable for all fitness levels, including those in wheelchairs. The walk is mostly flat.

Direction: The walk is an out-and-back track that returns the way it came.

getting there

The walk starts from the car park at the Boondall Wetlands Environment Centre on Paperbark Drive in Boondall, 30 minutes drive north of Brisbane.

Parking is ample for how trafficked the walk is.

best time to go

The walk can be completed year-round, however the path is very exposed to the sun so should be avoided in the hottest part of the day during warmer months.
