Bowies Flat Wetland
This artificial wetland in the heart of Coorparoo is a perfect little retreat.
You don't have to stray far from the inner city to get back to nature in Camp Hill. Bowies Flat Wetland is a manmade park that has seen picnickers, walkers and nature lovers visit since 2001.
This little suburban oasis features a boardwalk, plenty of grass and shade as well as wildlife to admire and look out for. Set up your picnic blanket for the day with the fam or do as the locals do and make this track a part of your daily stroll.
The wetlands were built for a project which aimed to lessen the amount of flooding in the area and prevent polluted water from making its way to Moreton Bay. The space is free for public use — all the council asks is that we keep it clean and don't feed the ducks.
