WETLAND WALKS
Eagleby Wetlands is home to a flourishing bird population, diverse walking trails and secluded picnic spots.
Of the coastal wetlands fringing Brisbane this is arguably the most picturesque with its stunning location on the bend of Pine River and the D’Aguilar Ranges as a western backdrop.
At the Nudgee Creek tip of the sleepy little sea hamlet of Nudgee lies this mangrove wonderland which is far less frequented than the greater Boondall Wetlands across the creek
