Boondall Wetlands reserve facilities including public car parks will still be available. Temporary toilets will be available to the public and facilities will remain available from 6am-7pm.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The centre is located at 31 Paperbark Drive, Boondall (entry via Stanworth Road) in the Boondall Wetlands.
