Running River Wetlands
This river system arises in the rainforest-covered mountains of the Paluma Range, thus providing it with regular wet season flushes of good quality water. The creek system contains a wide variety of habitats as it progresses from rainforest through gorges to savanna rangelands. Condition is generally good.
