Bowies Flat Wetland, Coorparoo

This man-made wetland down the road from us is a lovely little calm hideaway right in the middle of our suburb.  With friendly quacking ducks, birds, butterflies and greenery and featuring a boardwalk, I love wondering down there, taking photos and just sitting in the sun.  If anyone lives near me, it’s a sweet little place!  Although contrary to what it says online, you can’t feed the ducks (sadly).  Understandable I guess, since they really should know how to find their own lunch for survival.

  1. Oh wow isn’t that lovely?! What a great spot to have close by! I love the little oasis’ of nature in a city! Definitely well needed and such a good little ‘escape’ for an afternoon. Those ducks finding their own lunch! So cute!

  2. What lovely photographs of a beautiful spot.

    We used to able to feed the ducks at the man-made lake in the city I grew up…but we’re not allowed to anymore either. I guess their own natural foraged food is better for them anyway…

  3. Can anybody please know who the flats were named after as my Husband1s Mother was Bowie & her father lived in Ashton St. Love to know the no. of there address. Any Information would be greatly appreciated

  4. Before the wetlands there were tennis courts at the end of the street, my family used to play there.
