Enoggera Reservoir Walkabout Creek Foreshore
Enoggera Reservoir located adjacent to the Gap in Brisbane was built in 1866 and is the first major dam constructed in Queensland.
The reservoir is now open for some water-based recreation, while it is not currently being used as a drinking water source. Access to the lake is via Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre off Mount Nebo Road. The beach area includes a paddle craft launch point and designated swimming area. Swimming outside of the designated area is not permitted. Fishing is permitted from the shoreline or from paddle craft. Motorised vessels are not permitted on the reservoir.
Bushwalking and mountain biking are accessible from the site, with links in to the D’Aguilar Park trail network.
The new Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre recreation facilities are being managed by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, as part of their revitalisation of Walkabout Creek. For more information, visit www.nprsr.qld.gov.au.
