Billai Dhagun Circuit

Brisbane City Council Local Walks

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.

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.

Lots of water around and plenty of mozzies to match. The path is holding out well though. No problems at all.

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.

We started this walk knowing it could rain and it did while we were at the bird hide. We waited until the heaviest rain seemed to be over and completed the walk. The track is really good now - raised granite with a couple of sections of board walk. There were puddles around the path from the rain, but the path was fine.

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 !

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

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.

Easy and flat, nice bird watching area. Didn't see any birds from the watch house but saw a lot of jellyfish.
