Mangrove Boardwalk, Wynnum North, Brisbane

This page is a chapter in the book Queensland.

[top]Description

The Wynnum North Mangrove Circuit, or mangrove boardwalk as everyone calls it, is the most magical walk at high tide (a bit smelly at low tide sometimes, but not too bad).

It's a 1.4km circuit, more than half of which is on raised wooden boardwalks over the waters of Moreton Bay, winding through the mangroves.

A reliable place to see and photograph Collared Kingfisher, which live and breed here. Also resident are Mangrove Gerygone, Spangled Drongo, Grey Fantail, Leaden Flycatcher, Olive-backed Oriole and Mangrove Honeyeater - watch out for mosquitos.

Nankeen Night Herons sometimes roost near the northern entrance. A Noisy Pitta was recently observed at the site.
