Anstead Bushland Reserve
Anstead Bushland Reserve is over 80 hectares in size and is the largest Brisbane City Council owned natural area on the Brisbane River. The reserve is located approximately 20 kilometres south-west of the Brisbane CBD with an entry off Hawkesbury Road, Anstead.
The reserve is mostly open eucalypt forest and provides habitat for over 130 wildlife species, including a number of species that are identified as significant or noteworthy at a city-wide level. Some of these species include koalas, echidnas, wallabies and powerful owls.
Anstead Bushland Reserve has had many uses in the past. The remains of a basalt quarry can still be seen from the lookout located at the top of the old quarry. From here you can also enjoy views of the surrounding area and the Brisbane River.
Visitors to the reserve can enjoy bushwalks, horse riding, picnics, a kick and play area, barbecues and access to toilets.
