Swimming Creeks Brisbane

Exploring the swimming creeks in Brisbane is a job best done after a good amount of rain. Too much rain though, and you might find it too flooded. It is a balance. You certainly won’t want to visit the vast majority of these creeks if it hasn’t rained in a long time.

Things to consider when swimming in creeks

  • Is the water running and where does it come from?
  • Don’t drink from any local creeks
  • Water safety is a priority – treat it with as much caution as a local swimming pool
  • Don’t dive in if you can’t see the bottom (its a rule many teenagers seem to ignore at the most popular swimming holes)
  • Take your rubbish home with you, take only memories, leave only footprints.
