Greenwood Lakes

Forestdale, Logan, Qld, Australia, 4118
Greenwood Lakes Reserve is a former sand mine, located on Oxley Creek at Forestdale [Google map]. The reserve forms part of the important Flinders-Karawatha corridor, a 60km 'green ribbon' of bushland which begins at Karawatha Forest in Brisbane's southern suburbs and passes through Greenbank in Logan and Flinders Peak near Ipswich, to Wyaralong Dam near Boonah. Greenwood Lakes Reserve is a 13.5 hectare site rehabilitated by the Logan Water Alliance to offset native plant displacement at other Logan Water Alliance sites around the Logan area to meet environmental sustainability requirements.

There is a paved walkway through these wetlands starting at the intersection of Forestdale Drive and Paradise Road in Forestdale. You will also find a covered area with table and chairs at the entrance which is ideal for picnics. After a short walk through the trees, you discover a boardwalk that runs adjacent to a wide body of water formed by the creek. There is a great view from the boardwalk, but you can also get another vantage point from the nearby platform to spot some birds such as the Little Black Cormorant spreading it's wings in the sun.
