Join members of the ACF Brisbane South & Logan Community Group this month as we ramble through, and explore, the beautiful Karawatha wetlands.
There are 2 entrances, and we will meet on the south side from Illaweena St in Calamvale/Drewvale.
This 900 hectare forest is an important refuge for over 200 species of wildlife, and more than 320 native plant species. On our walk we will admire freshwater lagoon views, water birds and beautiful melaleucas (paper-barks)- and hopefully some forest animals.
Visitors to the park enjoy birdwatching, bushwalking, and using the picnic and barbecue facilities.
On our journey down Illaweena St, watch out for the Land Bridge, (specially built for wildlife to cross the road), and the animal-proof fencing on each side of the bridge.
Bring a thermos of tea or coffee for a cuppa and chat after the walk.

As we walk in the bush we acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land, whose custody and care can be felt deeply in these few remaining forest places. When we are silent, we can feel the spirituality of the natural world and pay respects to the people who cared for this land over many thousands of years. We remember that this country was never ceded.
