Brisbane Forest Park Walk-About Creek Wildlife Centre

Brisbane Forest Park Information Centre is located at the Mount Nebo Road entry to Brisbane Forest Park about twelve kilometres from Brisbane city centre. The Information Centre has a range of information about Brisbane Forest Park including the many picnic areas, lookouts and walking tracks within the park. You can also pick up a free travelers guide to Brisbane Forest Park. There is a gift shop at the Information Centre, which also sells detailed topographic maps of the area.

The Walk-About Creek Wildlife Centre is located at the Brisbane Forest Park Information Centre and provides a good introduction to the diversity of wildlife of Queensland.

Visitors can see wildlife of the region up close including wallabies, a wombat, rainforest birds in a walk-through aviary, frogs and reptiles, turtles and fish including the Queensland lungfish. The animals are presented in natural looking exhibits which replicate their wild habitat. There is a darkened room to view a platypus, and a display of nocturnal marsupials such as gliders and possums.

From the Park Information Centre there are a couple of short walking tracks. The Corymbia Circuit is 1.5km return and from Information Centre, the track descends into a wet eucalypt gully before climbing back up to the information centre. The Araucaria Trail is 5km return and from Information Centre follows the bank of the Enoggera Reservoir around a headland on the reservoir and then turns to rejoin the original track for the return to the Information Centre.

Brisbane Forest Park Information Centre complex is at 60 Mount Nebo Road, The Gap. You can easily drive from Brisbane via Waterworks Road then Mount Nebo Road. There are buses to the complex daily from the centre of Brisbane. Walk-About Creek Wildlife Centre is open from daily from 9am to 4.30pm (closed 25 and 26 December and 1 January).
