Tyto Wetlands is a unique 90-hectare natural wetland site that is home to over 230 species of birds and numerous tropical plant species in addition to such native Australian wildlife creatures as the wallaby.

Located just 500 metres from the township of Ingham and situated just a few hundred metres off the Bruce Highway down Cooper Street, Tyto Wetlands is a carefully preserved natural environment that integrates lagoons, walking tracks and native flora.

Experience the natural beauty and tranquility of this tropical environment by leisurely strolling along the four kilometre walkways. Interpretive signs, marked lookouts and specially created viewing platforms allow you to view local wildlife without interference or disturbance to their habitats.

The area is named after the endangered Eastern Grass Owl (Tyto Capensis) Tyto meaning monkey faced owl which can be found in the Hinchinbrook Shire, one of the few places in the world where this owl can be spotted regularly. This owl can be seen leaving their grassy habitat just on dusk.
