Mutarnee

Located approximately 45 minutes drive north of Townsville on the Bruce Highway, Mutarnee is a small peaceful hamlet nestled on the banks of beautiful Crystal Creek. At the local caravan park there's a small shop and service station and just a minute down the road you'll find the Crystal Creek boat ramp. From this easy access point, boaties can safely navigate their way along Crystal Creek to the big blue Coral Sea beyond. It takes no more than a few minutes and the scenery makes it well worth the effort.

Conditions are great for serious sea fishing so remember to pack your line, bait and tackle.

On the other side of Mutarnee you'll find the dramatic Paluma National Park. This Park is overflowing with beautiful natural attractions and things to see and do. The road up the mountain takes you through rich, lush rainforest and past cascading waterfalls, rockslides and clear water rock pools.

At the top of the mountain you can swim at the old stone bridge and admire this quaint hand-made structure up close. At plenty of spots throughout the park you'll find picnic areas and barbecues to make your visit even more enjoyable.

Accommodation at Mutarnee is limited to camping, caravanning and self-contained cabins, however motels, hotels and backpacker hostels can be found at Ingham just 15 minutes drive north.
