Logan River Trail
Flowing from the mountains to the bay, the waters of the Logan River are incredibly rich in history and diverse in nature. The Logan River Trail has been designed to provide points of interest along the river in the form of interpretive signage as well as improving wayfinding by making park identification signage visible from the waterway to aid in navigation along the river. Whether by tinnie or kayak, there is truly something for everyone to discover along this water-based trail.
Riverside parks are a great place to have a picnic, take a walk, play with your dog or host a family barbecue while you’re exploring the Logan River Trail. Each park has various facilities ready for you to enjoy. Use the legend and guide on the map below to plan your journey.
Parks currently featured on the trail and their interpretive signage subjects include:
Larry Storey Park
- Beginning in the World Heritage-listed Gondwana rainforest of Mt Barney National Park, the waters which rush past Larry Storey Park wind through the Logan region as they flow through fertile valleys, active floodplains and bustling urban centres until finally emptying into Moreton Bay. Learn more about the Logan River at Larry Storey Park.
- Forests and bushland are integral to the health of the river and the community, helping clean the water as it flows over the land before entering the river; acting as lungs for the region by converting carbon dioxide into oxygen; and supporting the region's threatened flora and fauna by providing food and habitats. Discover more on how the health of a river goes hand in hand with the health of the surrounding catchment at Riverdale Park.
Alexander Clark Park
- Winding through the region, the Logan River provided a perfect route for early European settlers to access the fertile lands further inland. Learn how they moved across, up and down the Logan River with cutters, steamers and punts at Alexander Clark Park.
Logan River Parklands
- Like Brisbane's Storey Bridge or the Harbour Bridge of Sydney, the Red Bridge stands strong as a defining landmark of Logan. Originally opened on 1st July 1931 as a toll bridge, the Red Bridge provided nearby communities with a reliable and permanent way to cross the Logan River between Loganholme and Beenleigh. Discover this icon for yourself at Logan River Parklands.
- Beneath the surface of the Logan River is a bustling aquatic community. As one of the most biodiverse corridors in Australia, the Logan River provides food and shelter for a plethora of aquatic, amphibious and terrestrial species of plants and animals. Investigate what really lies beneath at Skinners Park.
More parks will be added to the trail in early 2019. Explore the Logan River Trail today.
