Our primary aim is to protect and conserve Australian wildlife....

Jimirara Wildlife Conservation and Research Centre (Jimirara) is a grassroots organisation in the early planning stages of its existence.

Located on a rural property in Mount Surround, North Queensland, Jimirara is comprised of  40 acres of moist to dry Eucalypt woodlands.  Adjoining the Bowling Green Bay National Park,  Jimirara is home to an abundance of wild native flora and fauna, including Orchids, Cycads, Northern Quolls, and Red-tailed Black Cockatoos.

Jimirara is a home for a variety of iconic, endangered and threatened Australian wildlife that naturally occurs in North Queensland. Experience the wild plants and animals that call Jimirara and Bowling Green Bay National Park home.

Jimirara is located at Mount Surround, approximately 50 minutes south of Townsville in North Queensland, Australia.  

Public tours are held once per calendar month or by prior arrangement. Booking are essential. 

We know about your hectic schedule. We also know the only way you truly understand our wildlife is by getting involved out in the Aussie bush. 

We welcome volunteers to get involved with JImirara projects.

James Cook University media students have developed a Pozible funding page to to kick-start Jimirara’s goals. 

 Funds will go towards repairing site damage from the 2019 North Queensland monsoon event and establishing basic public facilities on-site.
