The whole of the UQ area is well worth a visit including the lakes - you can walk around on paths or sheltered boardwalks , they have huge fountains as well

Great little spot for lunch or just to chill out. Diverse bird life with board walks going over the lake to check out the eels and turtles.

Lovely to walk around the lakes or sit down and watch the ducks and other water birds. Turtles and eels are cool too.
