There is a place in Logan that is fighting for survival but while the city is still lucky enough to have this glorious place, it is worth going there for a look.
The Eagleby Wetlands Reserve is at the end of Logan St, Eagleby and was rehabilitated by local people to preserve the natural environment.
The local Indigenous people, the Yugambeh, are the traditional custodians of the Eagleby Wetlands area and there is still evidence of the past activity with scarred trees and stone tools on the ground.
The wetlands contain hundreds of metres of walking paths with a river walk, bush track and boardwalk and there is a walk to a bird hide for those wanting to get a closer look at some of the native wildlife.
Over 200 Australian native bird species have been recorded in the wetlands and there is plenty of reptiles and other native animals.
The area has plenty of parking with a playground, picnic shelter, fishing spot and toilets with plenty of grassed areas for the young ones to play.
