Kedron Brook is a creek that flows through the northern suburbs of Brisbane, Australia. It starts near the outer suburb of Upper Kedron and flows in an easterly direction. Kedron Brook then meanders through suburbs including Stafford, Grange, Lutwyche, Wooloowin, Kalinga Park, Toombul and Hendra before it empties into Moreton Bay.

For much of its length, Kedron Brook is lined with parks and sporting facilities such as bikeways and football fields. Kedron Brook has been channelised where it passes suburbs such as Lutwyche and Wooloowin. Tidal influence reaches as far as Toombul.[1]

The original course of Kedron Brook has been significantly altered in the vicinity of Brisbane Airport, where it has been redirected to a canal named the Schulz Canal.[2] This was done to allow expansion of the airport in recent decades. The canal empties into Moreton Bay adjacent to the small bayside village of Nudgee Beach.
