The mangrove community at Cooktown is a rich and diverse one associated with two major river systems. the township is situated at the mouth of the Endeavour River while only seven kilometres to the south there is the Annan River. The minor Esk River converges with the Annan River near its mouth.
At least 25 true mangrove species have been identified by the author so far in these three river systems.
Brief notes are made here concerning two species with limited known distribution along the northern Queensland coastline, neither of which has previously been recorded from Cooktown.
