Mangrove Board Walk - Main

Mangrove Boardwalks - Wynnum North and Lota



The Mangroves that grow in various areas along the Wynnum Manly and Lota foreshore provide a number of very significant functions for the marine environment. One vital function is the protection of our coastlines from erosion. As well as protecting the stability of our coastlines, the hardy nature of the Mangrove plant protects other plants close to the shoreline from the salt water and sea winds. The Mangroves also protect fish, prawns and other organisms from the threat of the deeper waters. The Queensland government has acknowledged the importance of Mangroves in regards to the marine environment, as the plant life is listed as protected under the Queensland Fisheries Act. As well as serving these invaluable functions the mangroves also provide an aesthetic forest of luscious greenery.

The development of the Mangrove boardwalks at both Wynnum and Lota demonstrates the recognition of the Mangroves value to the environment, as well as its natural beauty, by both the Wynnum Manly community, and the Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service. Both boardwalks allow easy and dry access to view the constant flurry of marine life active in these areas and are regularly maintained by the Brisbane City Council.

The Wynnum Boardwalk covers a section of the large Mangrove forest that stretches from Wynnum Creek to Fisherman's island. Over 500 metres of pathway winds through small shrubs and plants which later give way to tall gnarled trees, leaning and stretching over integrated pathways.

Visitors can expect to see wildlife including fish and reptiles. An interest in birds will be rewarded as every summer thousands of migratory wading birds make their way to Moreton Bay from as far away as Siberia and Mongolia. Such birds include the Ruddy Turnstone and the Mongolian Dotterel. There are also many wading birds that can be seen all year round including Ibis, Spoonbills and Sandpipers. If you're an early riser the stirring of birdlife from the Mangrove canopy is an amazing sight.

While the Wynnum boardwalk opens up to views spanning Moreton Bay and other Islands, the Lota boardwalk creates a feeling of remoteness and serenity as you stand at the mouth of Lota creek, surrounded by natural walls of thick Mangroves. Although the atmosphere of the boardwalks varies slightly, both contain much of the same natural elements, and are amazing places to visit at any time of the day.

Edward John Kelk was a pioneer settler in the Lindum and Hemmant Districts. In the early 1860's, 3 brothers William, Henry and Edward Kelk came to settle in the district from Lincolnshire, England and brought land not far from the present day Hemmant. The Kelks called their property Lindum-mere. The name of their home in Lincoln. Lindum is the Latin name from Lincoln.

William and Henry left the district, but Edward build a fine home on the 200 acre/81 hectare property not far from the site of todays Pleasantville. The entrance was near Lindum Railway Station and a Driveway led from the fancy gates up a hill to the house running along the line of the present Rodney Street.

Edward owned and operated a sugar cane plantation and a sugar mill on this Lindum property through which the Cleveland railway now runs. He was a pioneer-settler who was acknowledged as a highly respected citizen. He is remembered not only for his compassionate commitment to the early community, Lindum and Hemmant, but for his compassionate treatment of the local aboriginals who were employed to work on the cane plantations of those days and his implementation of projects to set them up in a local fishing industry by supplying them with boats, gear and supervision.
