QLD Cairns - Davies Creek National Park

On the eastern edge of the Atherton Tableland, granite outcrops, boulder-strewn Davies Creek and open forest make Davies Creek National Park a picturesque alternative to the rainforest parks around Cairns.

Davies Creek rises in the Lamb Range and flows into the Barron River. A magnificent waterfall cascades over the huge granite boulders in the park. Vine forest grows along the creek but most of the park is covered in open forest and woodland studded with grasstrees and termite mounds. The park is home to the endangered northern bettong.


Turn off the Kennedy Highway 21km south-west of Kuranda or 15km east of Mareeba and drive 7km along an all-weather gravel road to the park
