Bushland reserves

Discover the diversity of Brisbane City Council's bushland reserves, wetlands, parklands and forest. Council manages over 9500 hectares of natural areas for conservation, nature based activities and protection of biodiversity. View track maps and enjoy bush walking tracks, mountain bike and horse riding trails, picnic areas and playgrounds. You can also visit natural habitat areas and discover a range of native animal and plant species.

The personal safety of Brisbane residents and visitors is our top priority. Due to coronavirus, some of our events, facilities, services and venues may have been impacted. 

Protect yourself and others by practicing social distancing in our parks and bushland reserves and complying with public gathering requirements for non-essential gatherings.

Check our Coronavirus: Council updates and impacts page for latest updates, cancelled events and venue closures.
