Nice walk, especially during the afternoon during low tide. Make sure to take enough water and a hat and sunscreen with.

I've done both the 2km circuit walk around the wetlands and the 8km bike ride to Nudgee Beach. Both enjoyable, not difficult being mostly flat, the new visitor information centre is well worth a look with good info aimed at both adults and kids.

We walked from the Boondall Wetlands Environmental Centre today. Everything’s looking really green. However there are a lot of dead trees along the first part of the path that we hadn’t noticed in the past. There is a lot of new undergrowth . It still looks really beautiful.

Great walk enjoyed it, the lookout was great looking out over the bay to Redcliffe.

I've seen a number of snakes along this path. Usually green tree snakes or keelbacks but the occasional odd one too. This route is more for the cyclists and tends to flood in sections after decent rain.

Nice easy walk. Had lunch next to the beach. Most Cyclists made their presence known by ringing bell or calling out so wasn't too much of a problem. Recommend hat and suncream

Lovely walk - just have to watch for the cyclists

We began this walk at the Boondall Wetlands and then we reached Nudgee road continued on th the takeaway shop at Nudgee before returning to the start. This walk was 6km each way.

We started at the environmental centre. It was a hot day so some parts of the walk were quite warm some trees have been removed between the track and the highway in some places making it even warmer as there was less shelter from the afternoon sun. We only walked as far as Nudgee Rd and back which is a total of 8.4km.

I have walked sections of this path many times, but this was the first time I've walked the whole thing. Watch out for cyclists!

We walked from the environmental centre to Nudgee Rd. The walk took 1 hour 40 minutes. The area is quite dry at the moment compared to what we've seen, but it's still very lush.

good shade first half -- bituman / concrete 50 % walk - take in the walk to treatment plant return , a single loop of bird watch walk , trail to nudgee road then up to nudgee beach mangrove walk ( very nice ) then return to Boondall wetlands office gave us a 20 Klm walk - pretty boring really - best for a loop walk to bird watch ( 2 Klm ) then a picnic. BEWARE OF LYCRA BIKE RIDERS SO SO DANGEROUS the family groups are great with plenty of warning -- Its the Lycra wearing wannabe's doing 30 + KPH with no warning that do harm ! Should be monitored and fined !

Good walk, can get hot as quite exposed in places.

We started at the car park at the wetlands and went all the way through to the royal Brisbane hospital. Then through to Qut at kelvin grove and home to red hill. Long day ended up being around 20kms

Late afternoon walk. We continued on to Nudgee and back again. Really pleasant easy walk.

Ian and Sue on 4 May, 2013

Nice long walk, with moments of nice scenery. Great bike ride, which the kids will love. Concrete path for several kilometre's through forest area's, swamps, and lakes.

Great walk, the lookout close to the end of the track is great.
