Osprey House

Osprey House Environmental Centre is owned by Moreton Bay Regional Council and operated by trained and enthusiastic volunteers.

It is located on a picturesque site on the Pine River on Dohles Rocks Road, Griffin. Nestled amongst the mangroves on the river, where it opens into a wide estuary. It is rich with sea life and bird life, with bird hides along the boardwalks amongst the foreshore,

An osprey nest on the "Osprey pole", with live streaming video of the ospreys fishing and nesting. The Ospreys can be seen at almost any time in daylight hours, soaring over the river, diving into the water to catch fish, or carrying fish back to the cross bars or nest. In some parts of the world Ospreys have become very rare or locally extinct.

The interpretive centre includes a life size dugong, bird and animal displays and the live streaming video from the osprey nest.

You’ll find interesting educational displays, ‘touch’ tables and information provided in numerous and novel ways.

There is no need to book the playground space for birthday parties. (Please note: we encourage you to try and have no balloons and no plastic straws)
