Douglas Creek Wetlands
Tributaries of this sub-division, such as Michael Creek, begin in rainforest-covered mountains west of Ingham and contain many good condition permanent waterbodies. Douglas Creek itself and its lower tributaries are largely dry sandy, ephemeral creeks, some with significant bank erosion.
