The Boondall Wetlands lie on the edge of Moreton Bay between Nudgee Beach, Boondall and Shorncliffe. The wetlands include more than 1000 hectares of tidal flats, mangroves, salt marshes, melaleuca, grasslands, open forests and woodlands. This track passes through mangroves fringing the shores of Moreton Bay and the banks of Nudgee Creek. Birdlife abounds in the mangroves and a bird hide overlooks the tidal flats at the creek mouth. If you walk at low tide you will notice that these flats are vital feeding grounds for shorebirds. High and low tides in the mangroves reveal two very different worlds.

Wild Horse Mountain Lookout

Caboolture, Moreton Bay Area
Free Entry
Wild Horse Mountain Lookout stands out against the skyline as one drives north. The turnoff is located 30 kilometres north of Brisbane just off the Bruce Highway near Caboolture . Named after the wild brumbies which roamed the area, Wild horse Mountain stands 123 metres above sea level. Telstra and the Department of Primary Industries jointly provided this wonderful and informative viewing and fire tower platform. Walk the steep 700 metres paved uphill pathway and when you reach the top be rewarded with breathtaking 360 degree panoramic views across Pumicestone Passage and Bribie and Moreton Islands. The forest stretches below as a sea of green and the unique shape of the Glasshouse Mountains stretches across the horizon. On a clear day you can see to Brisbane. Interpretive boards inform the visitor of the features of the surrounding area, and this is a great spot to take a rest and soak up the view before the leisurely (but steep) stroll back down to the car park. Take your belongings with you and a bottle of water!

Cast your eyes across the river and wetlands from the viewing platforms and enjoy the ambience of the natural environment. So much wildlife inhabits this area that the you are spoiled for choice, whether it is birds on high, sleepy koalas in the gum trees, crabs in the mudflats or a dolphin playing in the river channel, each day offers unique surprises. The centre includes a theatre, an interpretive centre with information about our natural environment and how we can all make a difference, 400 metres of boardwalks and a barbecue and picnic area.
