    This is a beautiful and tranquil spot for a walk, or a swim in the dam. There is also a lovely coffee shop and wildlife centre. I highly recommend a visit.

    We had our wedding here and it is a very nice location for a bush themed wedding. You are surrounded by Australian bush and have view over the wonderful lake. The reception was also on site and was very well set up, and the catering was first class. Some of the best food I've ever had at a wedding.

    The Enoggera Reservoir in a bushland setting is awesome and the center, with its zoo, Cafe and bookstore is very impressive. It is the place to visit for hiking, off-road pedaling, swimming and canoeing. It is a place of beauty; an escape from the city and the burbs but within easy reach on the city's edge.

    Go Wild at Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre

    This bushland oasis in Brisbane’s backyard is perfect for families, friends and visitors to Brisbane. Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre is your gateway to Queensland’s diverse and beautiful national parks.

    The centre is located on the edge of D’Aguilar National Park—a 36,400ha park with eucalypt forest and rainforest that stretches from The Gap to Lake Wivenhoe in the west, and Mount Mee in the north. No other capital city in Australia enjoys a park this large and this diverse, just 12km from the heart of the city.

    Our Park Rangers are at the Visitor Centre ready to share their stories and help you discover all the special, nature-based experiences available to you. While you’re there, take advantage of the spectacular panoramic viewing experience at the Virtual Lookout showcasing national parks all over Queensland.

    At the Wildlife Centre, you’ll discover some of the weird and wonderful inhabitants of Queensland’s national parks. Explore on your own or join our park rangers at the daily feeding sessions (ask for the daily feed schedule when at the Visitor centre).

    Come face-to-face with some of Queensland’s interesting creatures in our Wildlife Discovery Show held every weekend (11am and 1pm).

    Plan a family day out with a walk or cycle around Enoggera Reservoir, and cool off with a dip or a peaceful paddle around the water’s edge.

    Bring a picnic or head to the Walkabout Creek Café for a relaxing meal on our new deck. You can even plan your wedding, family event or next conference at the Walkabout Creek Conference and Wedding Centre!

    A QldParks-Wifi hotspot is also available at the Centre.
