Davies Creek National Park and Dinden National Park

Mareeba, Mareeba Area

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.
