McDonnell Creek State School is located midway between Cairns and Innisfail, and is easily visible from the Bruce Highway. The beautiful rainforest-covered Bellenden Ker ranges form a scenic backdrop to the school, which is bordered by McDonnell Creek. The area surrounding the school is regarded as a butterfly sanctuary, reflected in the school emblem of the striking Ulysses butterfly and the Cairns Birdwing butterfly. The school was established in 1913 in this predominantly sugar cane farming area. While local children have always formed the core of our enrolments, there is a growing trend of parents from areas further afield choosing to send their children to our smaller school environment. With our small student numbers and the quality staff supporting our school, we offer a very safe and supportive learning environment for all students.
