This used to be a lovely place to visit - took a visitor there on Sunday (21 Oct 2018) and it was awful. A few miserable looking reptiles and that's it. When I paid, they failed to tell us the wildlife centre was under renovation....More

Expected a little more when we visited on a rainy Sunday. They only have a few lizards and snakes and three or four aquariums with fish and turtles in the reptile area, and my favourite- the platypus. All animals were super active though which made...More

The place itself was quite sad if it’s the wildlife adventures you expect. Only a few kangaroos, a wallaby, and a platypus for $7 entrance fee. However, if you skip the adventure and walk down further, you’ll stumble across the Enoggera reservoir. It’s absolutely stunning...More

The grassed area behind the Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre has to be one of Brisbane's best locations for a picnic. The spot is a sloped grassed area that offers people a picturesque view of the Enoggera Reservoir and the forest lining its banks. The location...More

5 stars for location and potential - 1 star for Queensland Government effort. This place is slowly going to the dogs. Half the exhibitions are now boarded up and the kangaroo area looks underpopulated with approximately 5 marsupials. There are outnumbered by the bush turkeys!...More
