On the cusp of the Queensland Outback, gateway to the wilds of Cape York and right at the doorstep of World Heritage listed rainforest, sunny Mareeba is the perfect base from which to explore the many experiences and stories of the region.

Get up early for the glorious dawns that make Mareeba the hot air ballooning capital of the north or perhaps sit quietly by a waterhole and let the local bird life put on a show.

Discover Davies Creek National Park and Emerald Creek Falls, with granite outcrops and clear flowing streams, these two parks are here for you to explore, swim and relax. For the more adventurous, our region offers premium cycling, mountain biking and hiking trails waiting to be enjoyed.

Enjoy fresh tropical fruits, freshly roasted coffee or a glass of locally produce wine before finding a quite spot to watch the stars appear as the sun sets over our beautiful region.
