Mareeba Tropical Savanna & Wetlands Reserve

Discover giant termite mounds scattered across savanna scrub and see hundreds of bird species, including Australia's only stork, the Jabiru, on this reclaimed wetland.

Take a nature-based excursion on and around the vast lagoons, which covers around 2000 hectares. Try the two and a half hour Sunset Reserve Safari, which combines a birdwatching cruise and a ranger-guided savanna drive on which you'll most likely spot wallabies and kangaroos. Paddle canoes or try fly-fishing for ancient species in the lagoons.

Come on a daytrip from Cairns or stay longer in eco-certified luxury safari-tent accommodation.

Mareeba Tropical Savanna & Wetlands is located 65km west of Cairns.
