The shire contains a remarkably diverse range of landscapes and vegetation as it incorporates four of the state’s bio-geographical regions, incorporating parts of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area to the east, the Einasleigh Uplands to the south, the Gulf Plains to the west and the Cape York Peninsula bioregion to the north.
The altitude of the Tablelands region moderates the tropical climate which means that Mareeba Shire enjoys cool, dry winters and warm, wet summers. During winter, daily minimum temperatures rarely fall below 15oC, while in summer the daily maximum temperature rarely exceeds 35oC.
