Eubenangee Swamp National Park
Eubenangee Swamp, an important wetland in the coastal lowlands between Ingham and Cairns, is a birdwatchers’ paradise. Over 190 species of birds have been recorded here.
Sitting below 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, and crocodiles, the park also protects some of the last remnants of various lowland vegetation types.
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. Remember to be croc wise.
