UQ’s Sustainability Walk tells a unique story and unveils a fascinating snapshot into a few of the many sustainability highlights on St Lucia campus.

The sustainability walk showcases almost 40 sustainability destinations featuring some of the sustainability initiatives and research works currently being explored by The University.  These destinations highlight the beautiful grounds abundant with native birds, animals and aquatic species.
Each walk is flexible so you can:
  • choose your own path to link the destinations
  • visit the sites related to a theme such as energy or biodiversity
  • visit one or two sites of interest
Each location includes interpretive signage to view along the walk.

Please note, some of the UQ Lakes destinations may not be accessible due to the UQ Lake and Amphitheatre Renewal Project, which is currently in progress.
