Boondall is a northern suburb of the City of Brisbane, and was previously known as Cabbage Tree Creek. The region is situated 15 kilometres north of Brisbane close to Moreton Bay. The Boondall Wetlands are located in the east of the suburb. The wetland land area is inundated with water, either permanently or seasonally, such that it embodies the characteristics of a unique ecosystem. These internationally significant wetlands contain more than 1000 hectares of protected area that provide habitat to a wide range of animals including more than 190 species of birds.
The suburb is mainly residential and is home to a fusion of young and established families and retirees. In the 2011 Census the population of Boondall reached 8,748 with 48.3% of that being female and 51.7% male. The suburb became a well-known destination when a drive-in cinema opened up on Stamworth Road in 1956. The entertainment component grew with the construction of the Brisbane Entertainment Centre with a 14,000 seat auditorium capacity and a regional ice skating rink located on Sandgate Road.
Progress and industrialization in the area is restricted somewhat to preserve the wetlands, but still allowing some ongoing growth in the suburb. The lush green surroundings of the area mean there are lots of large mature trees and room for younger ones as well. Tree roots drill into drains and piping causing obstructions to water flow. This is a common problems for drain cleaners in the area, along with pipes that are blocked due to debris or kitchen and bathroom wastes getting caught on the way out.
