Information

Beautiful lowland rainforest, wild rivers, the North Johnstone River gorge and waterfalls make the Palmerston Section of Wooroonooran National Park one of the most scenic places in the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. Both lowland and upland rainforests can be seen in the Palmerston Section.
Rainforest reaches its greatest diversity here in this high rainfall area. More than 500 rainforest trees occur here, including blackbean, milky pine, water gum and red tulip oak. Many wildlife live in this part of the park, including the tiny musky rat-kangaroo, double-eyed fig-parrot and chowchilla.
Camp in the rainforest at Henrietta Creek. Tent and caravan sites, toilets, a shelter shed and picnic tables are provided. Boil the creek water for five minutes before drinking.
