Paperbarks and mangrove forests line the many creeks and rivers in tranquil, unspoiled Russell River National Park.
Part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage area, the park sits near the estuary of the Russell and Mulgrave rivers and is a fisher’s paradise.
Set up camp on the beach, surrounded by paperbark and mangrove forests, in the shadow of the Graham Range. Sit back and watch a brilliant sunrise before heading out to fish in the mouth of Bluemetal Creek and in the nearby rivers and tributaries.
Be croc-wise in croc country!
