What's special?: Granite outcrops, open forest, boulder-strewn Davies Creek and Aboriginal rock art are the striking features of these parks. Park Features: Dinden National Park straddles the Lamb Range. Rainforest cloaks the wetter eastern side of the range, where Lake Morris, the main water reservoir for Cairns, is situated. Eucalypt woodland occupies the drier rain-shadowed areas on the western slopes. Between these two contrasting vegetation types runs a strip of a rare forest type known as wet sclerophyll. Davies Creek Falls is a magnificent waterfall that cascades over huge granite boulders and is a feature of Davies Creek National Park. A number of birds, such as the eastern yellow robin, the white-cheeked honeyeater and white-naped honeyeater are particularly fond of the wet sclerophyll forest of these two national parks. Endangered northern bettongs are also found in Davies Creek National Park and parts of Dinden National Park. These rat-kangaroos, smaller than a rabbit, are found only in very limited areas of north Queensland and nowhere else in the world. Researchers also recently discovered southern brown bandicoots residing in Davies Creek National Park
