Billai Dhagun Circuit

Billai Dhagun Circuit is part of the Boondall Wetlands, and after rain this walk can get quite wet. It is still quite an easy walk though. The name means 'Place of She-oaks', and you will see plenty of these here. There is a bird hide along the walk so that you can watch the water birds at the opening to Nundah Creek.
