We recommend that all visitors to Enoggera Reservoir bring: A Hat, Water, Sunscreen, Towel and Spare clothes (if you will be doing water activities). We have sunscreen available if you forget.

Some other items to bring may include: A packed lunch, your camera and a picnic blanket. Its such a pretty spot!

Are there toilets?

Only 200 meters away in the Walkabout Creek Discovery centre! And they flush, lucky you!

Is it safe to swim?

SEQwater has placed a boxed yellow buoy line at Walkabout Creek which has outlined the swimming area for safety. You’re not meant to swim outside of it but some people do at their own risk. We would recommend joining a group if it’s your first time open water swimming or to get a buoy buddy which can keep you afloat if you do get tired or get a cramp.

How deep is the water?
The reservoir is not even in depth and in some parts reaches 15 meters deep. There is a sectioned off area purposed for swimming which does not include 15 meter depth.
Can I reschedule?
For all scheduled adventure activities (excluding private group bookings) booking times and dates may be changed up to 2 days prior to the date of the activities. Please note: An $12.50 rescheduling fee (per person) will be charged for all changes to bookings
Participant rules

– Must have a blood alcohol level of 0%
– Must be respectful of wildlife and plant life
– Must be kind to other people
– No domestic animals allowed, sorry!
Can I bring my dog?

We’re afraid not, sorry! No domestic animals are permitted in national parks, there are too many lovely native creatures for them to disturb.

Is there storage?

Enoggera Reservoir is a public area, similar to a beach, and there is therefore no official storage. You are welcome to leave your belongings next to our check in desk (staff are around the area unless briefing) at your own risk free of charge.

The minimum age?
Participants must be 8 years of age or older to be in a Kayak or Stand-up Paddleboard by themselves.

The minimum age to be in a tandem kayak is 5 years old, and they must be in the kayak with a responsible parent or guardian of 16 years or above. 
Do you do vouchers?

A $3.00 postage fee is charged per package dispatched (no charge is incurred if the gift certificate is picked up from Walkabout Creek Adventures or sent electronically).
Can I take my phone?

You sure can! We have waterproof phone-cases available to purchase or hire! We actually encourage you to take a phone-case incase of emergencies and to get that perfect pic on the water!

about wet weather
If you are uncomfortable with the weather at any time, please don’t hesitate to contact us to check up on your booking.
Walkabout Creek Adventures operates kayaking adventures in all weather conditions except during electrical storms and hail storms. All other adventures may be cancelled during periods of heavy rain or adverse weather conditions. On the rare occasion Walkabout Creek Adventures needs to cancel a scheduled adventure, a new booking will be made or a voucher issued at no cost.
All bookings are non-refundable.
Is there first aid?

All of our instructors are licensed to perform first aid and a first aid kit is located at our base.


Indemnity Forms

Before participating in any Walkabout Creek Adventures activity, all participants must sign a Walkabout Creek Adventures Indemnity Agreement Form personally or by an Agent or Guardian if the participant is under the age of 18 years.

Do you serve lunch?

There is a delightful cafe at the Walkabout creek Discovery Centre, which is only a 200meter walk from the lakefront – Alternatively, the sloped hill gazing toward the lake is the ideal spot for a picnic!

What should I wear?
Water Activities – Wear clothes that may be able to get wet and a towel/change of clothes is recommended. Please ensure you bring a hat and water bottle.
The Kayak capacity

Our single Kayaks have a maximum capacity of 150kg. If the weight limit is a concern, a seated position on a large Stand up Paddlboard may more comfortably accommodate larger guests. Please contact our friendly staff prior to your booking date if this applies to you.


Your Refund policy

All Walkabout Creek Adventures activity and functions bookings are non-refundable and must be paid for in full at the time of booking. But we are always willing to chat and see what we can do to make your booking work for you

Where Do I go?

Follow any of the cement paths down until you reach the lakefront – If we are open, you will see us! Check out our Getting here page for more details.
