Smooth & flat
Starting from Stanford Road, Boondall, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Boondall Wetlands via the Billai Dha-gun Circuit, visiting a bird hide along the way. Expect a peaceful walk that lets you know about the area via some informational signposts, complemented by the entertaining Environment Centre at the start. The bird hide provides you a panoramic view over Nundah Creek, but the highlight of it would be the migratory birds. Coming from all around the world, they use these wetlands to rest and feed before heading off to the skies again. Early mornings and late afternoons are the best times to spot these interesting bird species. The track is wheelchair accessible since it’s boarded or paved throughout. As a plus, you’ll be able to bring your dog with you as well. Regardless of the season, remember to take mozzie(mosquito) repellent with you. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
