The Tully River plunges down the Cardwell Range, through a densely forested gorge. Part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, Tully Gorge National Park offers camping, picnicking in pleasant surroundings, challenging hikes and spectacular views.
You can explore both sections of the park from a variety of locations. In the Tableland section, watch as the Tully River plunges into the deep gorge from the Tully Gorge lookout, and follow the River walk to the river above the falls (and below the dam wall).
On the coast in the Tully section of the park, near Tully, set up camp in of the two camping areas and explore the surrounding area. Tackle the challenging track to the 678m summit of Mount Tyson for amazing views along the coast, or take a leisurely stroll along the Butterfly walk (best between September and February). Relax and enjoy a picnic at Alligators Nest and Tully Gorge day-use areas, and throw a line in the river to try your luck.
