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

We visited with some overseas guests and enjoyed the couple of hours spent exploring what it had to offer. Loved the area with Platypus, snakes, lizards and native animals. The younger children were thrilled. It's simple & peaceful, not jam packed with options and people....More

Walkabout Creek was perhaps the only place in Brisbane easily accessible on public transport (385 bus from city centre) where one could walk on easy going pathways in some peace and see birds and nature in a relatively unspoiled state. This, unfortunately, is no longer...More

Walkabout Creek is a fabulous spot to visit to enjoy nature, go for a hike, swim in the lake or take a kayak out on the water. In summer when we visited there were plenty swimmers cooling down in the lake and lots of on-lookers....More

The visitor centre obviously provides useful information about Walkabout Creek. The real point of the place is the access to the small, but well presented native animal refuge which includes small crocodiles, wallabies, wombats some snakes and some lizards. It will occupy a child for...More

This place is looking very sad! I notice a reviewer from 2015 said that (s)he had seen plans for a redevelopment but it hasn't happened yet except for taking away the aviary (and nothing has replaced it). Visible were 2 kangaroos, 1 wallaby, and a...More
