5 Places to Feed the Ducks in Brisbane

by Sophie Cannon (follow)
Your little ones will go 'quackers' for these duck feeding places in Brisbane

As a child growing up in the UK, heading to the local park with a bag of slightly stale bread to feed the ducks was some what like a right of passage. So when we moved to Brisbane with our 2 year old son, it was very important to me for him to be able to experience this tradition as well, and so became the hunt for the perfect place to feed the ducks.



I was actually pleasantly surprised at how many awesome options there are, not just within Brisbane but within my local area.

We've put together 5 awesome places to feed the ducks in Brisbane that your little ones will go 'quackers' for!

Capalaba Regional Park
Capalaba Regional Park is an awesome place to visit with the kids, not only is it jam packed with numerous play areas but did you know that it's also the perfect spot to feed the ducks? Not only is the pond fenced off from the park itself but it's also surrounded by seating areas for parents wanting to keep an eye on the kids.
Where? Pittwin Road, Capalaba 4157

Anzac Park, Toowong
This leafy North Brisbane park is perfect for any little adventurer! With lots of play equipment to explore, walking tracks to wander and a huge pond full of ducks to feed! The pond however is unfenced so little ones will need to be supervised at all times.
Where? 30 Wool Street, Toowong 4066



Hilliards Creek, Ormiston
Quite a recent find, Hilliards Park is nestled in the quiet Redlands suburb of Ormiston and is a great place to visit with the kids. As well as a small playground, sandy bike ramps and long winding pathways perfect for a family walk, there is also a quaint little creek that runs through the park and is full of ducks, fish and even a couple of geese! Stand atop of the wooden, storybook bridge, drop some bread below and watch the ducks go crazy!
Where? Starkey Street, Ormiston 4160

Doug Larson Park, Beenleigh
Doug Larson park has something for every member of the family, numerous play areas for little ones, state of the art BMX and skate tracks/ramps for bigger kids and plenty of seating, BBQ areas and scenic views for mum and dad. And right in the centre? A huge duck filled pond perfect for bread throwing babes. The water unfortunately isn't fenced, however there is a viewing deck and bridge to stand on if you didn't want the kids to venture to the waters edge.
Where? 41 Logan Street, Beenleigh 4207



Mount Cotton Community Park
Our favourite place to feed the ducks, Mt Cotton park has a huge pond full to the brim with all different types and the perfect viewing deck to feed them from. The park also has everything else going for it, including children's playground, basketball court, off leash dog park, walking tracks and BBQ facilities. Make sure to keep an eye out for the lone pelican that also resides on the water.
Where? 51-63 Valley Way, Mount Cotton, 4165
