Know your creek and catchment
Brisbane is built around its waterways and all Brisbane residents live in a catchment. There are many parks where you can enjoy a view of water, or you can take a walk beside a creek, the Brisbane River or Moreton Bay. You can also enjoy the waterways in a boat or canoe.
Know your creek fact sheets provide information about the flora, fauna and natural assets of Brisbane's catchments.
