Description

Along the rugged Clarke Range behind the Whitsunday coast lies Cathu State Forest. Forests and woodlands range form distinctive poplar gum Eucalyptus alba woodlands and exotic Caribbean pine plantations on the creek flats to dense rainforests and tall wet eucalypt forest along the range.

At Jaxut, the Pandanus Creek Track winds through lush rainforest upstream along the creek. Look out for the brilliant blue flashes of the Ulysses butterfly. You may also see other wildlife that lives in the rainforest, such as whiptails, agile wallabies and northern quolls.
