“A well maintained Park of unusual trees”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Sherwood Arboretum is a large well maintained park with a great collection of unusual trees and birdlife. There are good facilities for barbecues and families. The place is lovely for a stroll and extends to the Brisbane river. A very pleasant spot for our Sunday fish and chips.

“Early morning bird watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

Joined other bird enthusiasts on Sunday morning at 6.30am, perfect weather conditions, friendly people, and interesting talks for the 90min walk, followed by morning tea and questions and answers. It was great to see a microbat box attached to one of the trees, and many people wanted to know which birds lived in the box as they could hear "chattering".

“Fantastic place for a picnic with the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2012

Plenty of grass and trees with relatively clean and available BBQ facilities and toilets right beside the river make the Sherwood Arboretum a family venue for picnics and quiet contemplation in areas away from the crowds. You will often see extended families playing cricket, kicking the ball around, flying kites or just chatting in the shade.

“Beautiful park in Western suburbs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

This huge park, languishing along the Brisbane River in the leafy western suburbs is the ideal place to picnic, walk, ride or just relax with family and friends. Good playground for children, ducks on the lake and barbeques scattered throughout the grounds make it the ideal Sunday spot.
