Outdoor Recreation Management Strategy

Brisbane City Council has developed the Outdoor Recreation Management Strategy for Brisbane's Natural Areas 2011-2021. The strategy ensures outdoor recreation activities within Brisbane's natural areas can continue to meet the demands of a growing community while protecting the values of these areas.

The outdoor recreation activities covered by this strategy have been categorised into five main groups:

  1. Bushwalking, cycling and horse riding
  2. Picnicking and nature study
  3. Orienteering and geocaching
  4. Canoeing, kayaking and fishing
  5. Rock climbing and abseiling

The strategy does not change recreational access to any of Brisbane's natural areas at this stage. Further assessments would be required before any change in access or activities occur. Council's local laws continue to apply, however if changes occur, visitors will be advised via signs in the appropriate natural areas and on Council's website.
