Hasties Swamp is a large seasonal wetland renowned for its diverse range of resident and migratory birds. Over 220 species have been identified and a large bird hide, with informative identification signs, offers excellent waterbird viewing opportunities. Aquatic environments of open water, reeds, muddy edges and sedge land vary with the cycle of wet and dry seasons. The open eucalypt forest surrounding the swamp is a striking contrast to the lush rainforests found elsewhere on the tableland.

With over 200 kilometres (120 mi) of shoreline, Lake Tinaroo offers many bays with smooth water that are protected from the wind. To this end, the lake is often used for sailing, water skiing, houseboating and swimming. During the drought of the last few years, some of the trees that were flooded during the dam's creation have become a hazard to boats because of the receding waters. The park services that maintain the recreational areas of the dam have had to trim the dead trees that have appeared. Thankfully the dam's waters are now higher, so this is no longer a problem.

The Peeramon Hotel is the Tableland's oldest pubs however it was tore apart by Cyclone Larry 5 years ago. Since then it has taken around $1 million into rebuilding and restoring this iconic pub to its former glory. The old pub originally had gorgeous high old ceilings to help kep it cool in the North Queensland heat and a great array of old collectibles. The pub was built around 1911 and was a haven for the loggers who worked the area. It's worth a visit to see this old relic and you may even get to meet The Peeramon Hotel's resident ghost.
