Tully Gorge National Park
In this park, the Tully River plunges down the Cardwell Range, through the densely forested Tully Gorge, in Australia’s wettest area, part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. Heavy rainfall encourages lush tropical vegetation and ensures plenty of white-water on the Tully River. The park can be accessed from four different points, three on the coast near Tully and one from the Evelyn Tableland.
Relax and enjoy a picnic beside the river in the Tully Gorge day-use area. Set up camp in the pleasant Tully Gorge camping area to enjoy the pleasant surrounds. If you’re feeling adventurous, join an organised white-water rafting tour or take a stroll along the short, wheelchair-accessible Butterfly walk to learn about butterfly food plants. Climb the very steep and challenging Mount Tyson track to the 678 metre summit of Mount Tyson and enjoy views of the Tully township, coastline and Hinchinbrook Island from the lookout. Have a picnic and swim at Alligators Nest day-use area. In the tableland section of the park, walk to the Tully Gorge lookout to enjoy spectacular views of the deep gorge and Tully River below or mountain bike on the park’s internal roads and firebreaks.
