Breakfast Creek

Breakfast Creek, a locality in the suburb of Albion, is 4 km north-east of central Brisbane. It is situated on the north side of a waterway where it joins the Brisbane River, and the waterway is known as Breakfast Creek for about 1.5 km upstream to the railway bridge crossing. Thereupon it is Enoggera Creek, which has its headwaters at The Gap and the Enoggera military camp. The creek is joined at Red Hill by Ithaca Creek which rises at Mount Coot-tha.
