How to get to Moggill Creek
One of the best places for visiting Moggill Creek is the huge reserve on the border of Brookfield and Kenmore Hills. On the south side of the creek is Boyd Terrace Park on Boyd Terrace in Brookfield, and on the north side is Creekside Park on Creekside Street in Kenmore Hills. The reserve covers such a large area that you can access it from many residential streets on either side of the creek, with plenty of opportunities for on-street parking. There are also some off-street grassed parking spaces on Creekside Street, near the intersection with Willowbrook Street.
The entire area of the reserve covers many hectares and is a stunning pocket of peace and tranquility. Greeted by the sound of insects and whipbirds and surrounded by nature, you’ll feel like you’re out in the bush!
