Wetlands Discovery Trail

Archerfield Wetlands

Wetlands Discovery Trail is a new three kilometre trail perfect for exploring, biking, or bird watching, in the former industrial site that is now Archerfield Wetlands.

Archerfield Wetlands Discovery Trail

The track, which is part of Brisbane City Council's150 hectare Archerfield Wetlands Parkland precinct project, is guided by a series of informative, interpretive signs, taking visitors through the former industrial history of the site, its natural environment and the various native birdlife.

While bushwalking, birdwatching and off-road cycling along the track, visitors will be able to enjoy eucalypt forests, open grassland, freshwater wetlands, creeks and over 100 different bird species.

There is also the Wetlands Lookout Trail, an easy, short walk (450m) accessed via the Wetlands Discovery Trail out along the edge of the wetlands, to a shady lookout point over an open water section of the wetlands.

Good to know - The trail is part of BCC's master plan to transform the 150-hectare Archerfield Wetlands into premier parkland. Once complete, the park will feature an adventure play space, water play area, a youth hub and basketball court, an event lawn, picnic and barbecue facilities and a catchment centre focused on the environmental rehabilitation of the Oxley Creek catchment.

Need to know -  Recommended car parking is available on Factory Road (near the intersection with Alban Street), where there are approximately 10 car parking spaces.
