These units are based in the small rural town of Mirani, surrounded sugar cane plantations and sugar mills. Mirani State High School catchment encompasses the Pioneer Valley region and outer village areas too. A popular, small sugar town which lies at the heart of the beautiful Pioneer Valley known as the “Showcase of North Queensland” because of the density of sugar cane in the Pioneer Valley. Platypus Beach (Pioneer River) swimming spot is a short walk away and the shire is best known for its two sugar mills (at Pleystowe and Marian). The tourist attractions are sure to entice too, with the beautiful Finch Hatton Gorge Falls and the cool rainforest beauty of Eungella National Park State Forest where it is common to see platypus and tortoises swimming in the river, are all a short drive away.

Eungella National Park
Located 50 km west of Mirani is Eungella National Park which has extensive walking paths and the proud boast that, for the quiet and careful bushwalker, there is a rare opportunity to see platypus in the wild. As you climb up the escarpment from the Pioneer Valley the views are dramatic, the forest is dense, and during the wet season clouds form dense mist. A delightful stopover on the way to Eungella is the historic Eungella Chalet which was built in 1934 and has excellent views across the Pioneer Valley as well as a restaurant and accommodation.
The walks in Eungella National Park include:
Pine Grove Circuit
This short circuit is only 1. 6 km and takes less than an hour. It is flat and passes through rainforest from the Pine Grove car park.
Pine Grove-Cedar Grove Track
Covering 2.8 km and taking between 60-90 minutes this walk through rainforest offers a panoramic view across the Pioneer Valley from an excellent lookout. The rainforest has towering red cedars and tulip oaks and the area is known for its strangler figs and livistona palms.
Located 2 km from Eungella township. There are three walking tracks. The Pine Grove-Cedar Grove Track; the Sky Window Circuit which is a short 250 metres track to the lookout; and the Clarke Range Track.
Located 5 km from Eungella township this is the popular place for spotting platypus (best at dawn or dusk). It also has a pleasant picnic area. It can be accessed by bushwalkers on the Clarke Range Track (8.2 km one way) which passes Sky Window and passes through rainforest, cascades and creeks. At Broken River there is a Rainforest Discovery Circuit of 780 m (takes around 30 minutes) with tall trees covered with vines and epiphytes. It can be extended to a 1.6 km walk on the Granite Bend Circuit.
Crediton Creek Track
This is an 8 km one way (3 – 3.5 hours) moderately difficult walk to the Wishing Pool which passes along a rainforest gully and up the ridges to a pool which is surrounded by ferns.

The website explains: “There is no better way to see Mackay’s pristine rainforest than with a flying fox tour! Forest Flying will have you gliding through the treetops serenely and safely. Our tours are a fantastic way for people of all ages to get up close and personal with the wonders of nature.” The tours occur at 10.30 am and 1.00 pm daily – depending on the weather.
