DescriptionHorseshoe Lagoon is a suburb of Northern, Queensland and is about 1065 kms northwest of QLD's capital city of Brisbane. Horseshoe Lagoon is on the Bruce Highway, 70 kilometres south of Townsville, 30km north of Ayr. Horseshoe Lagoon is located on the right bank of the Haughton River, approximately 25km upstream of the river mouth. The out flow of the lagoon is via an artificially constructed channel on the north-west side. This channel flows north past a road crossing, where the channel turns into a more ‘natural’ looking creek with large paper bark trees and pandanus palms lining the banks. This continues to the railway bridge where the creek flows across open plains and ends at a tidal bund further downstream.
