Eubenangee Swamp National Park

Situated in the lowlands east of the Bellenden Ker Range (the wettest part of Australia), much of this park is flooded during the wet season. A short gravel and grass walking track takes visitors through rainforest and to the top of a grassy hill. Bartle Frere and Bellenden Ker, Queensland's two highest peaks, are in view as well as the swamp and its many waterbirds.

Eubenangee Swamp is of international significance — it is reputed to be the last remaining association of specific ecological communities (vine forest, grassland, sedge and paperbark swamp forest) occurring on nutrient-rich basaltic alluvium.

Activities

Bushwalking (hiking), and viewing wildlife.

Camping

There is no camping available in the park.

Location

Located 32 km from Innisfail.

Palmerston (Doongan), Wooroonooran
National Park

The Palmerston (Doongan) Section of Wooroonooran National Park is included in the traditional lands of the Mamu Aboriginal people. At the heart of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, it is a place of very high biodiversity, due to the high rainfall and fertile soils derived from basalt rocks. More than 500 rainforest tree species grow here.

Several access points along the Palmerston Highway allow walkers to explore the ancient rainforest of the southern end of Wooroonooran National Park.
