Information

Mareeba, with a population of 8000, is the main commercial and administrative centre and lies 64km south west of Cairns.
The Mareeba Rodeo has a history dating back to 1949 and has become a national icon on the rodeo calendar. Rodeo is held in July each year.
The Mareeba Tropical Savanna and Wetland Reserve is located only an hour’s drive from Cairns or Port Douglas, yet offers the visitor tours and activities that are an authentic Australian experience in the heart of the outback. In terms of land area, Mareeba Shire is one of Queensland's largest, a fascinating melting pot of pristine rainforests at Kuranda and the coastal ranges, rich fertile plains where mangoes, paw paw, coffee, macadamia nuts, sugar cane, pineapples, cashews, bananas and a whole banquet of other crops flourish. Then over the range to the vast sun burnt savannah plains of the great Australian outback, a land where nature and cattlemen live in kinship. The climate, Mareeba folk argue, is the best in Queensland possibly even the whole of Australia; they boast of 300 sunny days a year, clean arid air, low humidity and cooler evenings to the coastal towns. Prove it for yourself, come and see, the locals are all welcoming and the outback sunsets are awe-inspiring.
