Venman Bushland National Park

Mount Cotton, Redland City Area

Free Entry 

Venman Bushland National Park is a tranquil portion of bushland on Tingalpa Creek abounding in wildlife: koalas, possums, gliders and wallabies. In spring, wildflowers bloom. These 255 acres were sold to the government for one dollar in 1971 by a farmer with a dream of preserving wildlife and its habitat. Jack Venman (who still lived next door on the rest of his property) then devoted the rest of his life to improving the area for others. Two walking tracks take you to the creek. Listen for the tunes of birds, especially the deep call of the powerful owl and try to glimpse this rarely seen bird. Enjoy a picnic or cook your lunch on a wood-fired barbecue (firewood supplied).
