Day 19 - Motorways through wetlands

Day 19 - Motorways through wetlands
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

MUCH of South East Queensland's prime land is waterfront along the coast. The coast of Moreton Bay north of the city is quite an exception from this rule. Vast areas of swampy wetland are uninhabitable due to frequent flooding from high tides and heavy rain events. The heavy summer rains haven't come yet, so late spring is a good time to explore the wetlands. They should still be relatively dry despite a few recent big storms providing enough moisture to spring the undergrowth into life.

Today's hike takes me from the Shorncliffe Pier, heading across the vast Boondall Wetlands to Nudgee Beach, then heads inland along Kedron Brook bypassing the airport and across a couple of suburbs to the Brisbane River.
