Boondall

Best known as the home of Brisbane's premier concert hall, entertainment centre and sporting complex, the suburb of Boondall is located approximately 20 minutes drive north-east of Brisbane's city centre.

The suburb also harbours the Boondall Wetlands Park - an extensive system of important wetlands that partly encircles the Brisbane Entertainment Centre and Sports Complex.

The Brisbane Entertainment Centre regularly hosts big name acts from overseas along with major shows and sporting events. Set beside a lake amongst the wetland paperbarks, the grounds of the Entertainment Centre are a great place for a picnic with barbecue facilities provided.

For something a little different, you can strap on a pair of skates at the Sports Complex and take to the ice!

At the Boondall Wetlands Park visitors can learn more about the area at the purpose-built Environmental Centre. At the Centre you can sign up for a range of activities including cycling adventures, guided walks, arts, crafts and indigenous cultural workshops. Winding through the wetlands are a system of boardwalks that allow visitors a closer look at this fragile and unique environment.

Black ducks and wood ducks are regularly seen in the Wetlands. From September to March, the Wetlands become the home of migratory wading birds from as far away as Alaska, China and Japan. If you are feeling adventurous, you can take the walking path up to Anne Beasley's lookout. The walk is steep but the views are sensational.

There are several hotels and motels in Boondall with a wide range of dining options in the suburbs nearby.
