Eubenangee Swamp National Park

One of the most important wetlands between Ingham and Cairns, Eubenangee Swamp is a birdwatchers’ paradise, with over 190 species of birds recorded. 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. As well as being a significant habitat for waterbirds, the park also protects some of the last remnants of various lowland vegetation types. Much of the park is swampland, supporting paperbarks, waterbirds and crocodiles. The rest is rainforest and grassland.

Stroll along the 1.5 kilometre return walking track that follows the Alice River, through rainforest to the top of a grassy hill and enjoy views of Bartle Frere and Bellenden Ker, Queensland’s two highest peaks, as well as the swamp and its many waterbirds. Birdwatching is rewarding, as the different vegetation types attract many birds. Remember to be croc wise.
