Walkabout Creek Cafe
There’s no need to go hungry during your visit to our Wildlife Centre! Walkabout Creek’s cafe is located right above the wildlife centre and is open for breakfast and lunch 7 days a week.
Alternatively, you can take lunch into the spectacular outdoors of Walkabout Creek with one of our picnic hampers available for collection from the cafe. Explore our walking tracks to find the perfect lunch spot!
Delve into the wonders of D’Aguilar National Park with two scenic walking tracks. You’ll find both tracks departing from the Information Centre. Both tracks require a reasonable amount of fitness.
This circuit is a 1.5 km return trip and takes approximately 45 minutes. This track winds through a wet sclerophyll forest gully and is quite steep in places.
The track meanders around the shores of Enoggera Reservoir past hoop pines and loops back on itself around one of the reservoir’s peninsulas. Be sure to take your binoculars with you – there are some fantastic bird watching opportunities.
Set in one of Queensland’s most picturesque locations, Walkabout Creek can host conferences, weddings and Kid’s parties. To remove the stress of planning your event, Walkabout Creek can provide top-tier catering packages for your event, ranging from indulgent buffets to opulent high teas.
To accompany your children’s party, our staff can organize an enthralling Wildlife Discovery Show, allowing the kids to get up close and personal with some furry and scaly creatures from the Wildlife Centre.
