The Redcliffe peninsula is one of the most urbanised areas in Australia with very little land put aside for parks and wildlife. It’s understandable as the peninsula juts out into Moreton Bay and has some amazing beach areas so it’s a great place to live. Cool sea breezes and its close proximity to Brisbane add to the attraction. But it’s amazing what creatures can turn up in your yard if you provide some habitat for them.
So if you have a little space, plant some native vegetation. Consider a small frog pond, or provide safe access to water (so domestic cats can’t intervene). Then just sit back and wait for them to come; you will be rewarded with a wide range of local wildlife interacting with your garden.
