Mareeba Tropical Savannas and Wetlands - Cities, Towns and Localities
The Mareeba Tropical Savannas and Wetlands are less than an hour from Cairns, at the foot of the Hann Tableland and provides a unique outback experience for the visitor. The lagoons and channels of the wetlands lie in a savannah Reserve of over 5,000 acres, of which the lightly timbered savannah grassland, the Wetlands, totals around 300 acres of open water. The reserve lies on the East Asian-Australasian flyway, attracting migratory birds and providing sanctuary for a variety of terrestrial and aquatic wildlife. 

In the midst of this dry savannah landscape is Clancy’s Lagoon a perfect setting for the Tropical Savannah and Wetland Visitor Centre Ph: 07 4093 2514 / 07 4092 3360. Above and beyond the lagoon, reaching up to over 3,500 feet, is the Hann Tableland, stretching onto the Hann Tableland National Park.

There are a variety of tours, offered locally and by others into the Reserve, visiting any of the several lagoons and swamps of the Mareeba Wetlands. Throughout the year there are a variety of bird species including Ospreys, Sea Eagles, Brolgas, Sarus Cranes, Whistling Ducks, Jabiru, Jacanas, Red-tailed Black Cockatoos and many more. Other wildlife include the many frogs, reptiles, fish and the tropical Freshwater Crocodiles.

Bush track tours offer a glimpse of the savannah wildlife including the Agile and Whiptail Wallabies, Wallaroos, Possums and Gliders. Most are best seen early and late in the day, or by spotlighting after dark, by special arrangement.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
