Mareeba

Mareeba is an hour's drive west of Cairns and its multicultural heritage has given the region its distinctive flavour. The fertile district has a reputation as a food lovers' paradise which can be discovered by visits to tropical fruit farms, coffee plantations, wineries and the Mareeba Markets held on the second and fifth Saturdays of the month.

Mareeba has a history going back to the gold mining days and has a strong sense of community spirit which sees support for traditional outback sports such as the famous annual Mareeba Rodeo held in July each year and at the Multi-Cultural Festival held annually in August.

An opportunity arises to explore Mareeba's history and heritage at the Mareeba Heritage Museum with expert travel and tourist information given by their Visitor Information Centre, situated in Centenary Park, Mareeba.

Mareeba has perfect conditions for getting airborne with hot air ballooning at sunrise, taking to the air in a microlight or experience a flight in a restored warbird aeroplane from Mareeba Airport.

Nature based experiences can include cooling off in the rock pools after exploring around Emerald Creek Falls where there are public toilets, barbeques and tables, and a walking track leading to an excellent lookout. A popular locals' picnic spot, Davies Creek Falls, also has camping grounds and there is a moderate 850 metre circuit walk which takes you to the head of the falls.

The Mareeba region is acknowledged by birding experts as the richest region for birdlife in Australia. The Mareeba Wetlands is a regionally significant Brolga and Sarus Crane roost, where the best wildlife watching is on the early morning 'Early Birder Tour' or during the 'Reserve Twilight Safari'.

Emerald Creek Falls


Emerald Creek rushes out of the rainforest-clad heights of the Lamb Range and down into open eucalypt woodland. There the waters of the creek tumble over granite boulders, forming the picturesque falls that plunge into placid pools.

Emerald creek has a series of cascading waterfalls over granite boulders. A walking track takes you alongside the creek to the numerous falls and lagoons, up to the lookout with views of the valley towards Mareeba. The site is an ideal picnic spot and has several great swimming holes. Road is not suitable for caravans.

Camping is not permitted at Emerald Creek

Emerald Creek, Dinden West Forest Reserve


Emerald Creek rushes out of the rainforest-clad heights of the Lamb Range and down into open eucalypt woodland. Here the waters of the creek tumble over granite boulders, forming the picturesque falls that plunge into placid pools. Bottlebrush trees sprout from between the rocks, their red flowers giving a splash of colour to the scene in season. Smooth-barked water gums lean over the creek, the trunks of some interestingly twisted by the battering of floodwaters.

Picnic in the day-use area and cool down in the nearby creek. Follow the moderate 1.9 kilometre track to a lookout over the falls with scenic views, not only of the falls, but also back along the valley and across the northern Atherton Tableland. Near the creek, look for dragonflies and damselflies. You may even see the giant petalurid dragonfly, the largest dragonfly in Australia.

Stay on the track and behind safety fences at all times.

Davies Creek National Park and Dinden National Park


Davies Creek Falls, a magnificent waterfall cascading over huge granite boulders, and the impressive Clohesy River fig tree are major features of these national parks. Dinden National Park straddles the Lamb Range-the string of mountains behind Cairns. Rainforest cloaks the wetter eastern side of the range where Lake Morris, the main water reservoir for Cairns, is situated. Eucalypt woodland occupies the drier rain-shadowed areas on the western slopes. Between these two contrasting vegetation types runs a strip of a rare forest type known as wet sclerophyll.

Camp at Davies Creek or Dinden camping areas and enjoy one of the many walks ranging from 1.1 kilometres return to the more strenuous 12.3 kilometres Kahlpahlim Rock circuit. Relax on the sun-warmed water-sculpted rocks near Davies Creek or refresh with a paddle in the cool clear waters of the creek. Visit the Clohesy River fig tree and marvel at this magnificent tree on the 300 metre return boardwalk. Take a scenic 33 kilometre return drive along Clohesy River Road to explore Shoteel Creek and Clohesy River valleys.
