Our little museum has some captivating and unexpected relics you may take pleasure in browsing.
If you enjoy bird watching, turn right 800 metres northeast of this visitor centre and 2400 metres ahead you will find Wurruma Swamp; grab your camera and zoom into pictures like these above. Just note that it is not a sealed road, and it will be appreciated that the gate is shut after you get through.
If you are travelling towards the southwest take the opportunity to stop at the picnic facilities of Forty Mile Scrub National Park (66 km from our visitor centre) . You will have the opportunity to appreciate this pocket of dry rainforest, an unexpected view considering that Mount Garnet has very distinctive dry and wet seasons each year. You will see an amazing array of semi-evergreen vine-thickets and old white cedars. There are also eucalyptus and bottle trees; the one shown here on the right was photographed after some rains hit our area. During the dry season, this and many other trees drop their leaves to cut down water loss.
Our Visitor Centre satisfies the needs of travellers who enjoy the contact with nature away from the coastal routes. They come from places such as Cairns and further north, the Atherton Tablelands, southern cities via Charters Towers, and from the Gulf of Carpentaria and Darwin in the west. We have a wide range of brochures and maps, as well as Internet broadband access including wi-fi. We also have some valuable souvenirs from this area, which you surely would like to look at or even take with you.
