Kedron Brook WetlandsRecently our birders enjoyed a visit to Nundah Cemetery, Albert Bishop Park and the Kedron Brook Wetlands. These relatively small wetlands are situated immediately south of the well-known and much larger Boondal Wetlands.
The Kedron Brook Wetlands are mainly on the northern side of the Kedron Brook Floodway between Toombul and the outfall into Moreton Bay at Nudgee Beach. Most of the wetland on the southern side of this floodway have been gobbled up for the construction of the Brisbane Airport second runway.
The best viewing area is around Nundah Lake (UBD Map 141 Ref E1). It is best reached off the track from Albert Bishop Park along the Shultz Canal section. Look out to leave this bike track and follow a well made dirt track up the eastern side of a small rivulet (at Ref C3 of that map). This leads to good viewing positions north-west of this lake and adjacent wetlands.
Cars can be driven to a small rough area for parking at the south-east end of Toombul Road and it's connection to Southern Cross Highway. This allows a convenient access to the same lake.
Don't forget to take your binoculars or telescopes, if you can!
