Venman Bushland National Park
Venman Bushland National Park has been a popular Brisbane recreation area for decades. It was originally private property—owned by local Jack Burnett Venman (1911–1994). Today, this 415ha park forms part of the Koala Bushland Coordinated Conservation Area and is managed by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service.
The open forest—a mixture of eucalypt and melaleuca trees and well-developed understorey of flowering shrubs—is home to koalas, common ringtail and common brushtail possums, sugar gliders, greater gliders, swamp and red-necked wallabies, powerful owls and many other birds.
The park protects the headwaters of Tingalpa Creek and its tributaries. For most of the year, the creeks are dry or reduced to a string of waterholes, as the creeks flow underground. Frogs, water rats and eastern water dragons live in and around the creeks.
