QLD Cairns - Hasties Swamp National Park

On the Atherton Tableland, Hasties Swamp National Park protects a wetland which is a valuable refuge for waterbirds. Local and migratory birds visit this swamp.

Only a few patches of the original open eucalypt woodland remain, a striking contrast to the lush rainforests found elsewhere on the tableland. The eucalypt forest remnant occurs on the change from basaltic to granitic soils


Hasties Swamp is just south of Atherton
