Don and Christine Burnett Conservation Area

361-381 Avalon Road, Sheldon, Queensland 4157

The Don and Christine Burnett Conservation Area is a 4.17 hectare bushland reserve located in Sheldon and acquired by the then Redland Shire Council in 1990.

Attractions of the area include bushwalking and mountain bike trails; birdwatching in a quiet setting; wildlife and threatened tree species; and natural conservation bushland.

The conservation area is named after Don and Christine Burnett - long-time supporters of the Redlands Coast environment. Don and Christine were also heavily involved in setting up a wildlife ambulance in the city to aid the rescue of sick and injured koalas.

The conservation area is largely comprised of eucalypt regrowth, with significant remnant vegetation concentrated along the riparian corridor of Buhot Creek. This reserve is a significant bushland remnant.

The conservation area lies south of Avalon Road and Ford Road, Sheldon, and north of the Neville Lawrie Reserve. Enter from the access point along Avalon Road, where parking is located.

The bitumen carpark offers space for about 20 cars, a trail-hut with map and seat, tank water and bike/horse rail. There are currently no toilets at this entrance. The park reserve is open 4am to 10pm daily.
