Go wild at Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre!

Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre showcases some of the incredible biodiversity of Queensland and is home to various reptiles, amphibians, fish and mammals. It features an outdoor walk-through habitat for kangaroos and wallabies and is one of a select few wildlife displays exhibiting one of the world’s most fascinating mammals-the platypus.

Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre operates a seasonal holiday activities program during Queensland school holidays, four times per year (Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring). Activities include a range of nature-based activities and events for all ages, including Junior Ranger activities, nocturnal wildlife monitoring and daily Wildlife Discovery Shows.

The Centre features an Information Centre, a Wildlife Centre and a wedding/conference centre and cafe. There is also the opportunity to go swimming or kayaking in Enoggera Reservoir, enjoy a short bush walk, or go mountain bike riding on the dedicated skills course.

The Information Centre provides detailed information on D’Aguilar National Park and also showcases many of southeast Queensland’s national parks through a virtual lookout platform that provides a spectacular panoramic viewing experience.

The Centre delivers environmental education activities. Contact for further information.
