Osprey House Environment Centre

Griffin, Moreton Bay Area

Osprey House Environment Centre is nestled on the banks of the Pine River amidst the branching arms of the mangroves. It melds as a part of this sensitive wetland area with its natural timber design, sweeping verandas and meandering boardwalks inviting everyone to explore almost secret locations and learn about the local fauna and flora.

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.

Osprey House is situated close to where Ospreys regularly roost. These fish eating hawks may be seen at almost any time in daylight hours, soaring over the river, diving into the water to catch fish, or carrying fish back to their nest and feeding site atop a 21 metre raptor pole.
