Information

Tyto Wetlands is a naturally low-lying floodplain where, for many thousands of years, creeks and streams from the Herbert River Catchment have drained to form a natural wetland; part of the Herbert River Delta.

Tyto Wetlands takes its name from the Eastern Grass Owl, Tyto longimembris. The unique and majestic species is a nocturnal master of the wetlands.

Take a casual stroll along the pathways and bridges, over lagoons and through wooded parklands and you will also have the option to scale the 11-metre observation tower for a bird’s eye view.
Watch the many species that inhabit the Tyto main lagoon or view the lay of the land. A great photo opportunity.

Picnic tables are available on the Cooper Street entrance next to the Hinchinbrook Visitor Information Centre. Or take a picnic blanket and utilise the shade of one of the wonderful eucalypt trees throughout the Parklands.

The Wetlands are home to 27.4% of Australian bird species in one location. Visit Hinchinbrook Visitor Information Centre for a map and full bird list.
