The Tinchi Tamba Wetlands are home to a number of diverse ecosystems. From salt marshes to mangroves—grasslands to thickly wooded forests, it’s an ideal destination for nature lovers in search of a Brisbane escape. Visitors can get up close to indigenous birds, fish and mollusks thanks to tidal flats that host diverse wildlife after heavy rains. And the Moreton Bay Marine Park is home to dozens of species of migratory shore birds, as well as eucalyptus woodlands and rare paperbark swamps.
Bird Hide and Island Circuit trails offer popular hikes for travelers looking to venture into the wetlands on foot, while Eagle and Island canoe trails prove another scenic option for those who wish to paddle through open waters. Visitors can find fishing, walking tracks, protected bird habitats and quiet picnic areas in the Deep Water Bend area of Tinchi Tamba.
Tinchi Tamba Wetlands are located 19 kilometers north of Brisbane’s central business district, between Bald Hills Creek and Pine River.
