The mangroves provide the basis of marine food chains and a protective nursery for fish and prawns. Every summer, wading birds migrate to Moreton Bay from as far away as Siberia and Mongolia. At low tides these Wading birds can be observed from the boardwalk.

The boardwalk is located on the shores of the Bay near the mouth of the Brisbane River (Wynnum North). Rich silts and shelter from wave action provided by the Moreton Bay Islands create ideal growing conditions for mangroves. White mangrove is the dominant species of Moreton Bay. As you walk along the boadwalk notice how plants change from small twisted shrubs and small trees to the large old and gnarled trees seen near the seaward edge of the forest.

Mangrove Boardwalk - Wynnum North

The mangroves grow in many intertidal areas on the fringes of Moreton Bay. These extraordinary plants help stabilise the coastline and create a unique environment. These provide the basis of a marine food chain and a protective nursery for fish and prawns. Mangrove environments are not only fascinating places to visit; their value as marine habitat has been recognised by the State Government under Fisheries legislation.

Every summer, thousands of migratory Wading birds make their way to Moreton Bay from as far away as Siberia and Mongolia. These birds such as the Ruddy Turnstone and the Mongolian Dotterel, feed on the tidal foreshores near the mangrove forests. Other waders such as Spoonbills, Ibis and Sandpipers can be seen all year round. If you plan your trip to coincide with the mid to low tides, you can observe these waders from the comfort of the boardwalk. An early morning visit will reward you with the stirring of birdlife within the mangrove forest's canopy.
