Logan and Albert Rivers
The City of Logan has two great rivers: the Logan and the Albert. There are plenty of opportunities to relax on their banks, fish from a pontoon or launch a tinnie or jet ski and cruise their bends. Whether it’s taking time out at a riverside park for a picnic with the family, listening to birds chatter while you throw in a line, or exploring the river and its history by boat, there’s a myriad ways to enjoy our waterways. Our two rivers support native birds, mammals, reptiles and frogs. Two of the city’s endangered plant species can be found along the Logan River corridor, so keep an eye out when you’re close by.
You’ll find easily accessible boat ramps at:
- Logan River:
- Skinners Park, Carbrook
- Logan River Parkland, Beenleigh
- Tansey Park, Tanah Merah
- Larry Storey Park Waterford
- Albert River:
- Albert River Park, Eagleby
