Waterways and Wetlands
Logan has two iconic rivers: the Logan River and its little brother, the Albert River. Both have played critical roles in the history of not only our city, but in the lives of generations of locals who grew up playing on their banks.
Today this expanse of waterways throughout Logan City continues to play an important component of our natural environment, recreational spaces and contributes to the character of Logan City.
Unfortunately, many of Logan's waterways are not what they used to be. Development of the surrounding catchments for agriculture, housing, industry and transport and changes to the amount and quality of runoff from rainfall has reduced the capacity of our waterways to support the wide variety of wildlife that previously existed here.
To gain a better understanding of Logan's river and creek catchments visit the Logan City's Waterways & Catchments interactive map.
Logan's wetlands are valuable not only for recreation but also as habitat for many plants and animals. A great way to experience these wetlands is to visit Logan's local Parks.
Logan City Council is committed to the Logan River & Wetlands Recovery Plan which includes a number of initiatives for the protection and enhancement of Logan's waterways and wetlands.
