Townsville - Edmund Kennedy National Park
This section of coastline has changed little since explorer Edmund Kennedy passed this way during his ill-fated expedition to Cape York in 1848.
Edmund Kennedy National Park has a wonderful variety of vegetation including lowland rainforest, open eucalypt forest, paperbark woodland, sedge swamps and extensive mangrove forests. Most of the mangrove species found in Australia grow in this diverse wetland park in the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.
Turn off the Bruce Highway 4km north of Cardwell and drive 1km to the park entrance
