The Indigenous Australians have lived at Boondall Wetlands for a long time and continue to have links with this land. The Nurri Millen art totems in the wetlands celebrate this culture.

Boondall Wetlands has a diversity of wildlife. Mammals that live there include flying foxes, bats, possums and squirrel gliders. There are also a variety of frogs, reptiles and butterflies to be found within the reserve. An amazing variety of birdlife can also be found throughout the diverse vegetation types including mistletoe birds, tawny frogmouths, eastern curlews, kingfishers, rainbow bee-eaters, grass owls and wrens. At low tide, shorebirds feed on the mudflats. Cormorants, darters, egrets, ibis and herons can be seen year round.

Sandgate War Memorial Park


Sandgate's war memorial resembles Lutyens' Cenotaph in Whitehall, the site of Remembrance Sunday ceremonies in London since 1919. Governor Sir Matthew Nathan unveiled Sandgate's 91 tonne granite and concrete memorial on 24 February 1924.

Of the 330, mostly young, Sandgate men who went to war, 51 died. Australia-wide, about one in five of the 300,000 volunteer soldiers died in WWI.

War memorials were a matter of local pride, indicating a district's patriotism and wealth.

Sandgate Mayor WH Bowser not only presided over the memorial's organising committee which commissioned prominent Queensland architect George Gray Prentice to design the ?850 monument, but also donated much of the granite from his Samford quarry.

Charles Lowther, of the masonry firm Lowther and Sons that built the cenotaph within a small island of parkland, was a returned soldier: he'd served in the Light Horse in Palestine during WWI.

The memorial bears a verse- They died, and yet in memory shall they live, That we may know the worth of sacrifice, Know that their death is freedom's cause, Stands as a beacon light to point the way, To paths of peace.

Names of Sandgate residents killed in WWII, Malaya, Korea and Vietnam have been added.

Nudgee Beach


Nudgee Beach is the closest beach to the Brisbane Central Business District. It offers a bike track that runs close by the Schulz Canal itself, and eventually reaches Toombul Shopping Centre (and from there, many other parts of Brisbane). Nudgee Beach is surrounded by numerous mangroves and the built up area is bordered to its north and west by the Boondall Wetlands.

Tuckeroo Park


Tuckeroo Park includes a large, fenced dog off-leash area with water access for your dog to swim and a 'Doggy World' obstacle course. It is an 'adventure' park for dogs. You can also take your dog onto the tidal section of Nudgee Beach, as long as your dog is on a lead. This dog park is a favourite for many Brisbane residents. Nudgee Fishing Platform is located beside 'Doggy World'.

Tabbil-ban Dhagun Mangrove Boardwalk (Place of Salt Water)


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.

Kalinga Park Memorial


Victoria's Great Ocean Road may be Australia's best known WWI repatriation project but Brisbane families enjoy another year-round: Kalinga Park's unofficial 'Diggers Drive'.

In May 1924, Governor Sir Matthew Nathan opened a 1,200 metre tree-lined roadway from war memorial gates in Park Avenue, following the curve of Kedron Brook, to Sandgate Road.

The road was built and trees planted by 83 unemployed soldiers. After WWI, Australia was awash with grief for its 60,000 dead fighters. Many more returned nursing injuries and needing re-employment. While the Commonwealth Department of Repatriation placed returning soldiers in jobs, progress was slow: community groups like Kalinga Unemployed and Distressed Soldiers Committee formed to provide relief and work. Diggers Drive was its project, commencing in 1922.

Kalinga Park had opened in 1910. In October 1920, memorial gates at the Park Avenue entrance were erected as an everlasting memory of the patriotic services of men who enlisted from Kalinga District. The gates were a venture between the local Ladies Patriotic Club, Kalinga Progress Association and Toombul Shire Council. For a time, the park was even called ANZAC Memorial Park.

Now a popular outdoor play space, it served as a large army staging camp during WWII.
