Group convenors: Anne Jones and Rob Whyte

Where Fish Creek meets Enoggera Creek, Walton Bridge Reserve is an urban rainforest in the heart of The Gap. The site has been a reserve since the nineteenth century and contains an important patch of remnant dry rainforest. It is linked to the Enoggera Army Barracks, which contains large areas of relatively undisturbed dry sclerophyl bush.

The active Walton Bridge Reserve Group meets 4pm on the first Saturday of every month except January. Since 2010, the group has been working on restoring the Fish Creek corridor between Lochinvar Lane and Glenella Street. The site features important remnant vegetation.

Walton Bridge is a popular recreation spot with a history. It has been a meeting place for the local indigenous people and a rest area for bullock teams traveling west. The junction of the two Creeks, Fish and Enoggera, was an important meeting place for Aboriginal people.

Walton Bridge is at the heart of The Gap – Walton Bridge has been the location for many events since 2002. It is close to the nursery and very central to everyone in The Gap.
