About Us

About Nudgee Beach EEC
nudgee-creekNudgee Beach Environmental Education Centre (NBEEC) is situated in the suburb of Nudgee Beach, 19 km from the centre of Brisbane city, at 1588 Nudgee Road, Nudgee Beach. The area around Nudgee Beach provides a variety of diverse environments to explore, including the Bramble Bay section of the Moreton Bay Marine Park, Nar-dha (Nudgee waterholes), the Bora Ring with the Boondall Wetlands Reserve to the north and west, and the Kedron Brook Floodway and Brisbane Airport to the south.

The learning intent and outcomes come from the Australian Curriculum using Nar-dha, local bora ring, wetlands, mangroves, marine environments and their catchments along the Mountains to Mangroves corridor.  Powerboats, canoes and tricycles are used to explore and investigate the reserve which is more than 600 ha in size.  The areas used are ideal for identification activities using dichotomous keys, studying adaptations, biodiversity, natural resources, nature corridors and human impacts.

We strive to meet the needs of our community through delivering programs which are focussed on curriculum links, departmental priorities and the individual classroom teacher’s goals and priorities. Our staff strive to provide high quality learning experiences which are safe and enjoyable for all students. Through feedback we can improve our teaching practice and review and refine program options.
