Eubenangee Swamp National Park, North Qld, Australia

Sponsored by

Australia, Queensland, Cairns

The Eubenangee Swamp is a vast swamp in the Eubenangee Swamp National Park. This is a region of Cairns, Queensland in Australia, 1,332 km northwest of Brisbane. This landscape, exceptionally beautiful and dangerous due to crocodiles, has become an inspiration to create this biotope. Rainbowfish in this area are my favorite fish species’.
