QLD Cairns - Eubenangee Swamp National Park

One of the wettest areas in Queensland is the coastal lowlands east of the Bellenden Ker Range. Eubenangee Swamp National Park protects seasonal coastal wetlands here around the Alice River, an important habitat for waterbirds.

Eubenangee Swamp is one of the most important wetlands between Ingham and Cairns. Lowland rainforest fringes Canal Creek’s levee banks. This is the last remnant of this type of rainforest. Melaleucas and sedges grow around the edges of the swamp and rare plants grow in the park.


Take the Bruce Highway south from Cairns to Miriwinni. Drive east along the Bramston Beach Road then turn south onto Cartwright Road and follow this road to the park entrance
