About the project

The new Boondall Wetlands Environment Centre showcases the ecological significance and values of Brisbane’s northern wetlands and its connection with Moreton Bay. 

The new environment centre was developed at the site of the previous Boondall Wetlands Environment Centre. This project is part of Council’s commitment to keep Brisbane clean, green and sustainable for our future generations.

The new centre:

  • educates about the area's environmental significance
  • highlights the ecological significance of the Boondall and surrounding wetlands
  • is a showpiece environment education centre for Brisbane's northside
  • establishes a creative, learning and play space where visitors can explore, discover and be inspired by the area's diverse wildlife and landscapes.

Project details

Construction included:

  • a new environment centre building, with the establishment of activity spaces and educational displays
  • new toilet facilities, within the new building
  • upgrades to the entrance road and car park.

Upgrades to the access road and car park improved safety and access to the centre, by including a small increase in car parking spaces and the addition of a dedicated bus drop-off zone and turnaround area.

To ensure the least possible impact on vegetation, the new building was located in the previously cleared area to the north of the existing building.

As bushfire is a risk in the area, a key focus of the project was to design the centre to ensure public safety and reduce the risk of damage from bushfire. 

Project timings

Works to construct the new environment centre started in April 2019 and were completed in early December 2019.

Council would like to thank the community for their patience during these works.
