Gubbins Range is located 35 kilometers north of Cooktown, in Far North Queensland. This pristine area of rainforest and sun bleached beaches makes this isolated area a unique part of wilderness Queensland. Add to Description →
This area was discovered in 1881 after a bridge was placed across the Endeavor River in the hope of finding pastoral land for growing crops for the gold mining boom. Since the end of the boom, the area has returned to its former wild state.
Aerial photographs of Grubbins Range clearly show the McIvor River and delta emptying into the Coral Sea. There are clear photos of the fringing coral reefs, and coral bombs.
The Grubbins Range and McIvor River are mainly accessible via boat, although some four wheel drive tracks have been formed through the rainforest.
