Description

Edmund Kennedy, Girramay National Park boasts natural beauty combined with a diverse range of landscapes. The low-lying area has a wonderful variety of vegetation including lowland rainforest, open eucalypt forest, paperbark woodland, sedge swamps and extensive mangrove forests that include most of the mangrove species found in Australia. During the wet season a deluge of rain flows from adjacent ranges to flood the creeks and swamps. As the floodwaters subside, the swamps become a tranquil setting, the water stained with tannin from the tea-trees. During cooler, drier months the swamps dry out. This diverse wetland park is in the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and provides valuable habitat for the vulnerable estuarine crocodile as well as the endangered mahogany glider and southern cassowary.

Surprised with past comments. We had no problems towing our 20ft caravan down here with good turning bay at end of road. Could probably stay the night as there are no signs saying otherwise. The walk was nice, especially along the beach.
