Alligator Creek Valley

Alligator Creek flows through the valley in a series of cascades, deep pools and waterfalls. Alligator Creek is approx 20 kilometres south-east of Townsville. It is bounded on the north by the Bruce Highway and Bowling Green Bay National Park is to the immediate south-east. A portion of Mount Elliot was gazetted as national park in 1940 and the Alligator Creek area was added in 1967.
