The City of Logan has some of the most accessible bushland reserves in South East Queensland, most with walking and cycle trails, boardwalks, barbecue facilities and shelters. Explore pristine natural areas and keep an eye out for koalas, wallabies and possums, and a host of native bird species. In our eucalypt forests you’ll discover gorges, cliffs and unique rock formations – right in the heart of suburbia.
Our city has more than 900 parks across 70 suburbs. Perfect for time out with family and friends, our parks offer outdoor exercise equipment, state-of-the art playgrounds and fun features including disk golf, a parkour course and flying foxes. You can fish from pontoons by the river, or relax under 200-year-old eucalypts.
The Logan and Albert rivers also offer paddlers plenty of great trails to get active on the water and discover our rich history and diverse natural areas. Whether paddling for exercise, fishing or a fun family cruise, there’s a trail for everyone to explore.
Canoe and Kayak Trail
The rivers begin their journeys in the World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests on the New South Wales / Queensland border ranges.
They wind down through farmlands, bushland blocks, urban suburbs and tidal flats in Logan.
The Albert joins the Logan around Eagleby and they complete their journey by emptying into Moreton Bay.
These waterways are a rich resource and place of spiritual significance for Traditional Custodians including peoples of the Yuggera and Yugambeh language groups. They were also important in the establishment and growth of the early European settlements in the region.
Learn more about the history of the rivers, plants and animals the rivers support by exploring the Logan River Trail interpretive signage in our Logan River parks (featured on this trail).
