Abbot Point - Caley Valley DOIW
The site extends about 18 kilometres from Mt Curlewis in the west to Euri Creek in the east and about 6 kilometres from Bald Hill in the north to Caley Valley homestead in the south. Its centre is at 19 degrees 55' 22" S, 148 degrees 02' 25" E and is about 21 kilometres north northwest of Bowen.
The site provides an outstanding example of wetlands on a tropical prograding coast. Permanent water, a wide range of wetland habitats, very rich food resources and sheltered roosting and breeding sites cause the site to be exceptionally important for waterbirds.
