Walkabout Creek at Enoggera Reservoir is a delightful place to visit with your kids, friends and family. It is the perfect place to connect oneself with nature, by spending a relaxing day spotting wildlife and going for a swim in the reservoir – the oldest man-made dam in Queensland and the third oldest in Australia.

When not undertaking Walkabout Creek Adventures activities, visitors can take a walk around the reservoir’s edge or experience the Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre where you have the opportunity to see the kangaroos, platypus, reptiles and a wombat. Visitors can also relax at the Walkabout Creek Café which offers a selection of sandwiches, cakes, tea and coffee.
