  • 8.5 km of walkways and bike tracks.
  • An interpretive centre featuring interactive LCD screens and viewing platform.
  • Five substantial bridges providing safe human movement around the entire site. The bridge rails can collapse in times of flood to minimise debris build-up.


  • A large variety of bird and animal species living right in our own backyard.
  • 100 nesting boxes have been placed for birds, possums and gliders in the wetlands and wireless cameras can be installed for research projects if required.
  • 430,000 Australian native plants including 20,000 shrubs and trees.
  • Bridge 4's 80 metre span (including elevated approaches) over the Scrubby Creek floodplain. It is 28 metres high and one of the highlights of the site.
  • The tributaries flowing through the wetlands.
  • Waterways up to 12 metres deep in some parts.

Preserving by design

  • Only 40 hectares of the 120 hectare site is being developed. The remaining 80 hectares are being protected and rehabilitated.
  • The wetlands are man-made, created by sand and mining operations after World War II, and have largely remained untouched since the 1990s.
  • No pathway has been placed through the Wallum Froglet's habitat to ensure its future.
  • Non-native trees have been cleared, leaving natural bush and regrowth to encourage the return of native wildlife.
  • Each allotment in the high quality, clean, green industrial estate has a rainwater runoff facility (provided by Logan City Council as part of standard services).
  • All buildings are being designed to maximise environmental sustainability.
  • Energy efficiencies are required in all development designs to minimise the amount of electricity required.
  • Each allotment can potentially have future access to recycled water, to be used for landscaping and industrial use.
