Tropical Coast Top Ten #8 - Natural Wonders

Sandwiched between World Heritage Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef
Won't You Stay Just A Little Bit Longer...

Natural Wonders are in abundance along the Tropical Coast - this beautiful part of Queensland truly is Designed by Nature.

Tyto Wetlands on the Hinchinbrook Way – 110 hectares of wetlands that are home to a remarkable 27.4% of Australian bird species in one location - beautifully tended parklands for you to just relax and enjoy nature.

Wallaman Falls - Australia's tallest single-drop waterfall is a part of Girringun National Park in the the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. It boasts spectacular scenery and an array of plant and animal life. The creeks and rivers are home to Platypus, eastern water dragons and saw-shelled turtles. If you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a musky rat-kangaroo or an endangered Southern Cassowary.
This is just one of the huge array of waterfalls on the Tropical Coast - you could spend an entire holiday visiting a different waterfall every day.

Mission Beach - 14km of pristine golden sand looking out on the spectacular Dunk Island and the other Family Islands - home to a growing population of Southern Cassowaries.

Kurrimine Beach where the reef comes right up to the shore.

The Great Dividing Range, including Bartle Frere and Bellenden Ker – the tallest & second tallest mountains in Queensland, in the fabulous Wooroonooran National Park.

The Tropical Coast is sandwiched between World Heritage Listed Rainforest & The Great Barrier Reef - The range of Natural Wonder Experiences is just incredible.

The hardest thing is deciding what to do while you are here – you may have to stay a little bit longer.
