The Fort Bushland Reserve

The Fort Bushland Reserve is one of the few remaining lowland dry vine forests left in Brisbane, which gives it a special botanical significance. It is home to swamp wallabies, bandicoots, echidnas and squirrel gliders, and there has been a proliferation of native bees and butterflies, and other insects.

Tracing the history of The Fort

The Fort Bushland Reserve is on the corner of Cliveden Avenue and Fort Road, Oxley. It is the only part of that suburb to abut the Brisbane River, and quite impressive a spot it is, too. Situated high on a bluff overlooking the Mermaid Reach of the river, it is adjacent to the Rocks Riverside Park, in Seventeen Mile Rocks.
