Abattoir Swamp Management Committee

In May 2021 Mitchell River Group signed a management agreement with Mareeba Shire Council to take over the ongoing management of a remnant wetland known as Abattoir Swamp.

The wetland is located on the Molloy - Mossman Road and is one of the few publicly-accessible reserves of its type in the area.

Renowned in times past as an excellent bird-watching destination, the wetland has suffered a steady decline in condition over the past decade.
