More about the Cruise
Ross River Dam is listed as a wetland of significance. It holds some 232,000 megalitres of water and has approximately 221 known species of birds.
Around Lake Ross we see white-belied sea eagles, wedge-tailed eagles, black swans, peregrine falcons, red-tailed black cockatoos, azure kingfishers and blue-winged kookaburras, to name a few.
That makes it one of Australia’s best bird habitats. The lake is also home to hundreds of kangaroos and other wildlife that freely roam around its edge.
The area around Ross Dam has a rich pioneering history, dating back to the days of Cobb & Co.
This relaxing and intriguing cruise is the only one of its kind in North Queensland and the MV Kathleen Mary offers the only way to get out there and experience this vast and captivatingly scenic area beyond Townsville.
