Mareeba Wetlands

If your heading north from Mission Beach to the Cairns Highlands, then I can recommend you go and visit the Mareeba Tropical Savanna and Wetland Reserve. There are 4 different self guided walks around the reserve, a boat cruise going out 3 times a day as well as a sunset cruise. You can even stay there in deluxe tents. I took my Mum there and we had a great time, we did one of the 1 hour walks which took us around the lagoon and then enjoyed a boat cruise where we were able to see the Lotus flower up close, they are just beautiful. As it was an overcast day we didn't get to see the resident crocodiles or turtles who normally lay out and sun themselves on a bright day. A great day out.
