Come out and explore O’Sheas Crossing, a truly beautiful stretch of the upper Brisbane River at the northern end of Lake Wivenhoe.
Located between Lake Wivenhoe and Lake Somerset, O’Sheas Crossing offers a relaxing picnic spot and the ideal place to launch your kayak or canoe to go on a natural river adventure. Bring a blanket and chill out with a book under a shady tree or just relax and admire the tranquil view of lush green bushland surrounding the reserve.
If you are a keen angler, make sure you bring a fishing rod. There are native and introduced fish species including Australian Bass, Golden Perch or Yellow belly.
O’Sheas Crossing, Lake Wivenhoe features toilets, barbecues, picnic tables, parking, large grassed area and plenty of shady trees. We recommend you bring a gazebo as there are limited under cover areas.
This great facility is managed by Seqwater.
You may get a visit from inquisitive pelicans and turtles when you fish from the banks of the river. Be on the lookout for kites, eagles, galahs, ducks, kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and other wildlife.
Sunrise, sunset and lush hills are a spectacular sight over the tranquil waters of O’Sheas Crossing.
Please play it safe and abide by Seqwater rules.
