Davies Creek National Park and Dinden National Park

Mareeba, Mareeba Area

Davies Creek Falls, a magnificent waterfall cascading over huge granite boulders; the impressive Clohesy River fig tree; pleasant camping and purpose-built mountain bike trails are 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 while eucalypt woodland covers the drier rain-shadowed western slopes. Davies Creek National Park is adjacent to Dinden on the western side of the range.

Stay 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 kilometre Kahlpahlim Rock circuit.

Relax on the sun-warmed water-sculpted rocks beside Davies Creek or refresh with a dip in the cool clear waters of the creek.

Enjoy the scenic drive along Clohesy River Road to visit the Clohesy River Fig and marvel at this magnificent tree on the 300 metre return boardwalk. Access is only by four-wheel-drive vehicles and the creek crossings may be impassable after rain.

Take a scenic 33 kilometre return drive along Clohesy River Road to explore Shoteel Creek and Clohesy River valleys.
