The small suburb of Berrinba is located between the Karawatha Forest in the north and the Logan Motorway and Scrubby Creek to the south, less than 1 km from Logan Central. The protected wetlands at Berrinba are regionally significant and many rare, threatened and migratory birds and animals find refuge in this rehabilitated area including pelicans and cormorants.
Recently opened to the public for the first time, the Berrinba Wetlands area can be entered via the south side of Fifth Avenue and comprise 80 hectares of the 120 hectare site of the South West One Industrial Development. There are 8.5 km of bike tracks and walkways that offer a safe and accessible way for people to benefit from the peaceful surroundings and observe the wildlife. The picnic area and interpretive centre are built in a high tech style offering wonderful vistas and well-displayed information on the Berrinba Wetlands.
Homes in the suburb are generally modern brick and tile homes, with most homes being part of recent developments in the suburb and on well laid-out blocks. All buildings including those in the new industrial park at Berrinba are being designed to maximise environmental sustainability. Young families have been attracted to the area because of its nearness to an area of great natural beauty as well as its convenient location in relation to services and facilities.
