What We Love Most About Wishart!

We’ve hinted at it earlier on this page, so you may have guessed that our favourite place in Wishart is Boorabin Picnic Ground. It’s an opportunity to escape from busy urban life, take in some natural serenity and enjoy the wide range of amenities on offer here. It’s great for the whole family, with the Bulimba Creek Bikeway creating a kid-friendly cycle path through the park. 

There are barbeques and picnic areas, a basketball half court and even a dog off leash area with agility equipment. The park is easily accessible off Mt Gravatt Capalaba road, and there’s plenty of parking in the car park. 

What’s great about Wishart is the abundance of parks throughout. If you like the vibe of Boorabin, you’ll also enjoy Delavan Park and Wishart Community Park.
